    Hi guys,

    Today I received a letter from the SLC entitled Recovery of Overpaid Grant.

    I was studying in my second year and postponed studies to continue next year september. The main reason being my dad was struck down with Meningitis and I need to support my mum by working.

    I understand them tryong to recoop their money but what options do I have available to me?

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to pay back all grant for any period from when you stopped to the end of the summer. They will not consider any further funding until it is repaid.

    How long ago? They have toughened up on grant repayment a lot since October.
