After submitting the appeal request online, it’s crucial to continue monitoring the SASSA Status through the SASSA website while awaiting a re-determination. The full 90-day review period may be required before receiving a final response on whether the appeal was approved or denied again.

As soon as there is an update reflecting the outcome of the appeal:
