    Hello,

    I'm 23, and applying for the first time to student finance. I've been financially independent since being 18 as I've been on benefits (please don't judge me!). I was on Income Support as I was estranged from my parents, and when I became too old I moved onto Employment and Support Allowance.

    When the form is asking for the Benefit Office Name, do I put my local Job Center, or do I put the name of the benefit I receive?

    I did ring Student Finance to try find out but the person on the other end of the phone didn't seem to know either.


    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    I'd suggest putting the details of the DWP office that sends through your official ESA letters (and that you get ESA) - that way the evidence you provide if they ask for it will match what you've listed.
