When I applied to Student Finance I said that I would also be applying for the DSA on account of my mental illness. Ironically enough, said mental illness has made me drag my feet to the point that I still haven't submitted the DSA application as I've been too anxious to get a letter from my doctor confirming my disorder. It's reached the point where I probably won't be applying at all anymore.
I have my entitlement summaries for my maintenance and tuition fee loans, and I've been given expected payment dates for each instalment. However, I haven't received any kind of physical letter or email from student finance confirming what they'll pay, which the website says they'll do- "We'll send you a letter confirming what we'll pay to your university or college. You might need to take this with you when you register."
I'm paranoid- is this because I haven't applied for the DSA yet? Will I still get my maintenance and tuition fee loans if I don't apply?
Can you relate?
