URGENT! When will my Student Finance be paid for September?Watch
I'm going into Year 2, so living in a rented house not uni halls.
When will my SF be paid into my account?

Whenever they receive confirmation of your enrollment onto your course you should get your student finance, I don't really know the exact date.
Probably should add, that's assuming student finance are on the ball, which is rare! I've seen people waiting into November before the first part of their student loan came through. That's the worst case scenario, but it's not uncommon for their to be delays with them processing your payment(s).

You won't get paid until the university has confirmed with Student Finance that you have enrolled and are attending, usually you will get your money a week after you start (possibly sooner).
My official start date is 1st October though, but I need to pay my house stuff in mid to early September, so i'm wondering if I can ask or find out if it can be or will be paid earlier than 1st October?
There is a timetable of payments on your student finance page. Remember that they are dependent on you registering/enrolling on your course which is done through your university before lectures. If you enrol after the date on student finance, then I think it's 3 days after the enrolment date.
Don't think I can give you a direct link cause it'll redirect you when you log in, but on the first screen after your password, secret answer etc etc. there's a link on the side saying 'View Payments' If you've signed your declaration and they've received it your payment should say 'approved'. The date for my first one is the 10/09/2012, which is the first day of term for us.
You will receive your first payment(s) within 3 to 4 working days of your attendance being confirmed to us by your university or college.
All other payments should also be paid into your account within 3 to 4 working days of the expected payment date.
You also need to have sent them your signed decleration in order for them to pay you on time. If you haven't done so already you should do this ASAP as it will likely take them a few weeks to finalise your application, since they will probably be dealing with applications which have been submitted late, and also with applications from EU students. The best thing to do in this case is to send your signed decleration via recorded delivery as you can be assured that they received it, and it has been accounted for, as it will require a signature. I done this with my mum's PFF2 form as I sent it off on the 29th June, which was the deadline day, but they got it on the 2nd July, and my account had been changed to say that they were now waiting on my signed decleration, which I'm gonna send off soon via recorded delivery. I don't know whether you will get paid at the start of September or the middle of it, as they don't usually pay you your loan until a few days before your expected payment date (that's what they do with me). I go back to uni on the 01/10/2012, but my first payment date is the 07/10/2012. In the past 2 years, my first payments for each year has always been either on the same day I start uni or a few days before, never after until this year, but it's only a week for me so I can survive. However, I doubt you will paid your loan in early or mid September, as I've never heard of anyone being paid a few weeks in advance.
