If you applied at an SASSA Office, you ought to have gotten your SASSA reference number along with your application receipt. If you still have access to the receipt, this post will be very useful.
You should also receive an approval letter if your grant is already approved, which will contain your reference number. If neither of these routes works, you can try the following options.
Locate SASSA Reference Number Via WhatsApp
To find your SRD grant reference number via WhatsApp, send ‘SASSA’ to 082 046 8553 on WhatsApp. Reply to the prompt with ‘status’ and then ‘yes’. Follow the rest of the prompt, and you will receive your reference number.
You can track other SASSA grants via WhatsApp too via the same WhatsApp number.
