Financial Evidence to Support Application a bit Late

    SFE just sent me an E-Mail about a 'Household Income Check' to tell me that they're 'checking my household income to make sure you get the correct amount of student finance' and that they will 'contact my parents to ask them to confirm their income'. This confused me as I sent in the PFF2 forms a few months ago, they processed it and didn't ask for any more evidence. Additionally, my Student Finance account online doesn't say that I need to send more evidence.

    I gave them a call to see what this was about and the adviser told me that I had to send in financial evidence such as a P60 form or paychecks, although this isn't indicated anywhere in the E-Mail I received. Because of this, I have a couple questions.

    Was what the adviser said correct? I'd generally assume so but what she said isn't indicated in the E-Mail.

    If it is, my application will likely be complete after the start of my course, as SFE currently have delays of around 2 weeks. As there is a base maintenance loan, will I receive that before the financial information is properly processed or not?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi NotAWildman

    We do run audit checks on applications. If you have been asked to provide evidence, I would advise you to do so as soon as you can.
