Maintenance Loan Problems, Help Please?Watch
I completed my student finance but stupidly forget to apply for maintenance loan. I sent off the maintenance loan request form when I realised what I'd done - about two weeks after I submitted the main student finance stuff.
The thing is, they've accepted my main stuff and sent me the declaration to sign but there's no word yet of the maintenance loan. It says it takes six weeks to process so I was actually expecting it ages ago and I'm worried it's gotten lost.
I'm not sure what to do. I have at least six weeks before I start uni, so should I resend a maintenance loan request form? Do you think it could all be sorted out in time? I really don't want to delay getting my loans. I've never had late loans before so I'm not entirely sure who to speak to and what to do if it happens.
Alternatively, should I sign the declaration and accept what they're already offering and then send of a maintenance loan request form afterwards or would that basically take the same amount of time?
I really do need the extra money so leaving it out entirely really isn't an option.
Thanks in advance!
The woman on the phone offered to send me another Maintenance loan request form but didn't say whether they had or hadn't received the one I already had. She just told me about the things I could already see online.
OK so ....
Fill the ..kin form in and return it to them ...ASAP.
They dont have an army of gnomes that can locate your application and check for you. You need to cover your ass. She has advised you what to do. You don't like the answer and you expect us to be able to provide you wit ha better answer.
Next time don't be such a dumb arse and check your work when applying for people to GIVE YOU MONEY you need ....
Have you ANY idea how many applications this company are going to be dealing with ?
They don't give a crap if you don't get yet your loan on time ...
Oh and .. if you had already telephoned them you should have included this information in your original question ....
I know I have to send off some forms. My question was whether I should re-send the Maintenance loan form or sign the declaration first and apply for maintenance loan later. I wasn't sure if signing the declaration would mean I couldn't have a maintenance loan.
I'm sorry if it was a stupid question but I genuinely didn't know which was the best route. I've never had this issue before and was just puzzled. I didn't post this to annoy anybody, I was just hoping somebody could help.
READ the declaration. It says somewhere on it that it's subject to amendments or something.
I was just concerned that, if I signed it, they would see that as the end of the whole thing and not add the maintenance loan later because I'd already agreed.
(I know I sound really idiotic, I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. I'm not very good with words.)
Now that I know it applies to changes I wish to make to the amount, I guess that means I can just sign and post it off and change the maintenance loan afterwards. Thank you very much!
Why are people so arrogant and obnoxious on here? I've heard that student finance is a nightmare to contact. Also, phone operators aren't exactly proficient. There was absolutely no need to question his/her ability to undertake a degree at university.
Thank you for being kind though!
I was kicking myself as soon as I realised. Next time I'll have to read every word ten times and sit about an inch away from the computer screen so I don't miss a thing
