    My dad has lost his job at the start of my first year of uni. Im currently getting the minimum loan from SF as my combined parents income is over the limit for any kind of real support. My dad was the main household earner and as my mum earns less than 20k a year im now owed money.

    My parents have sent off the forms again with all the info on them. Im just trying find out how quickly it takes for student finance to correct it on their end as its been a number of weeks now since my parents have sent off the forms.

    Also if anyone else has info on how the process works, do SF top up ur loan to the correct amount and will this be done before my next payment in January 2017 ?


    The timescale for processing parental financial information is 14 working days if it has been longer than this since you sent the forms I would advise you to call us on 0300 100 0607 in order for us to check the progress of this.

    If your application is reassessed and your finance is increased you will receive a interim payment.
