What method did you use to apply: email, USSD, WhatsApp, etc?I decided to apply as I was retrenched last year and my fledgling business I started in Feb is now dead in the water. Filled out the intiial application which does not ask for a bank account details. Got a mail yesterday stating I have provisionally qualified and had a link to follow.

On Friday Sassa announced the new function that allows potential recipients to check the status of their applications. It can be accessed via the web on srd.sassa.gov.za/sc19/status.
Both can apply...What happens if there are two people in the household that are unemployed and not getting any other form of income? Can both of them apply for this or is it limited to one person per household?
