If you recently applied for an SRD r350 grant by SASSA or a similar grant, your application will have to pass a screening process; this process is known as Sassa means test.
But the questions are: what is the screening process, what are the requirements, and what will my application be? Well, here are the answers to all of these questions.
Why is the test required?
The purpose of the means is to ensure that all the people who qualify for the test follow all the requirements to receive grants. Apart from that, it makes sure that they are not violating the right to receive the grant of another person who truly deserves this grant.
What if I pass the test?
Once you pass the test, SASSA will determine how much amount you will receive as a grant. For example, the older persons’ grants are paid on a sliding scale; the more you earn, the less you will be paid. Once done, check your Sassa status, and you will be able to see your payday.
