    Has anybody ever successfully complained about SFE? (In regard of late or blocked payments)

    If yes, what are the best channels to take for the quickest response ?

    Have you tried calling SFE for a start? They don't block payments for fun. You must have done or not done something. At the very least it sounds like you need the full picture before you start venting in earnest.

    Most common reason for the payments to be blocked is due to Nino validation (national insurance number) - if you are in your first year and just recently got approved then payments are always blocked until he national insurance number gets validated (it gets sent on a Wednesday and comes back the Wednesday after and if valid, payments will be unblocked)

    Another common reason is due to the bank details provided.

    There are lots of other less common reasons so it's best if you call up so an advisor can check the account and tell you exactly
