    Same is happening to me! for the 2010/2011 cycle I've only just applied (last month or so) and well less than a week ago my payments were "Approved", now they're "Blocked". I called them a few days back, they said everything was in order they had checked everything, yesterday however after I saw "blocked" i called again to hear that apparently they need to check that I've actually attended uni........ Said that might take a week! LOL.
    I wonder how hard is it to pick up a phone and ask is mr ... ...... a student of yours on the ... ... .. programme? :|



    Just saw that you posted this a month ago, any luck since? :P if so how long did it take until you got your cash?I just need to go on a holiday!!!!!!

    When you've got thousands of students calling you every hour you're open, and a huge backlog of applications to get through, I'd say it's pretty hard to do it straight away.

    Blocked = SFE validating your national insurance number with HMRC. Once it's returned, your payments will go back to Approved.

    Could also be blocked if post sent to the address you were given is returned to SFE.

    Yes that was the cause. No need to panic people.
