Hiya, so this is the deal.
I applied for student finance A LONG TIME AGO. As in, February.
After all the usual rubbish that occurs within the process, i have FINALLY been told they don't need anything else.. PHEW!. Therefore, i assumed payment would be made soon. (If i had believed the predicted payment date they gave me- The 12th of september would have been the magical day).
I registered at my uni last Tuesday, checked my bank details, checked all of my details, even went and asked my reception to scan my entitlement letter "just in case" the automated system let me down. Shouldn't i have been paid!?
I have been at university for over a week now and am down to £40 until they pay me. My status on the website is at "approved" for grants and "blocked" for everything else. I really don't know what to do! I know that "blocked" means they are checking my NI number and was just wondering...how long does it take to get from BLOCKED to PAID>???????
Any knowledge on the subject would be comforting
Do i just stick it out and keep waiting?
