Problem with evidence

    HelloI'm an EU citizen that has been living in UK for about 8 years and currently applying for Student Finance. I'm eligible to get Maintance and Tuition fee loan but they require from me evidence to confirm that I have been living in UK for more than 5 years.

    I have sended them almost everything I got, like P60's, Bank statements, confirmation of emplyement and they declined everything saying that they are copys. I have given them a call and they accepted confirmation of employement but they also said that they require more evidence. The problem is, that I dont have anything more than that. So my question is.

    Is there a possibility for a solicitor to confirm someone identity, and that this person has been living in UK and worked for more than 5 years, so Student Finance could accept it as an original document?

    Thank you very much in advance

    Hi Xivv

    We can't accept cover letters from people. All documents sent must be the original ones and not a copied version.
    We can accept DWP letters, council tax, housing benefit, utility bills, P60s, job centre letters etc.
