I got sent my declaration form from SFE almost two weeks ago now and I signed it and sent it off the next day and my status on my account changed from 'Approved - awaiting signature' to 'Approved' so obviously they've received it.

However yesterday I got sent another one which is identical to the one I got earlier. Do I send the second declaration form off? :confused:

Also on my SF account it says that only my grant is 'approved' atm the rest (student loan, tuition loan) are 'blocked', I'm not sure if I have to send the second declaration form off to unblock them even though the form is the same as the first one. :erm:

WTF?

Their whole system is backward- it would probably be best just to send it off again to be safe?

I think its blocked because they dont release them until you have enrolled at uni. as soon as you do they usually pay a week later.
Id send off declaration recorded signed for anyway....

Oh...is yours blocked too?

And they have received the first one (otherwise my status wouldn't have changed) so I guess I don't need to send it again. :dontknow: :erm:

No sadly i m still waiting but I applied late. There are lots of posts about it as payment dates werent when people were getting funds. You have to be confirmed as enrolled before you get any money.

Are the figures on the second declaration definately exactly the same as the first one?

The 'blocked' message usually relates to the fact that SFE are in the process of checking your National Insurance number with DWP. That is usually complete within a week.

As Paul said, the payments will become unblocked once they verify your National Insurance number, not when you go to Uni (mine are all approved).

I think you should leave it, if your application is approved, just rejoice and be thankful!
