Wrong Maintenance Loan amountWatch
Can anyone help?
Maintenance Loan £3,928
A higher amount of Maintenance Loan £4,502
Does your application summary not list both amounts?
Your summary then lists them separately:
If you asked to be income-assessed, then SF will contact your parents and ask them to send details of their income. The extra amount will then be given to you. If you didn't ask to be income-assessed, then you will only get the 3.9 until you change your application.
If you ask to be income-assessed, your parents can't send in their income details until SF contact them. Has that happened yet? If it has and your parents have responded, then it takes a while to assess the application with that income to get the extra. Have your parents sent in their income information yet?
Hi I'm having the same problem. It shows I'm getting £3,928 as the maintenance loan, so i guess thats the basic minimum id be getting and i have asked for the additional load. It shows up with 'Up to £4,502' so does this mean i will be getting both amounts together making it £8,430? Im just struggling to understand it as in my first year it just came up as one whole figure at £9000 roughly.
I called a month ago was told I was due for update on the 2nd July. Nothing changed ! So I called again, was told it would be rushed through within 48 hours, still not done, so called again. Was promised it would be sorted that day monday just gone by 8pm and it was, thankfully. My issue was the original maintenance loan was authorized before they received and reviewed my evidence. When they recieved my evidence it just sat there. Sometimes they need a reminder I think as there are lots of applications. I know some people didnt ask to be means tested either which has caused a problem with their loan only being the minimum.
