    Hey fellas, does anyone know what level of background checks are done for your student loan? I don't live with my mother but, if I said I did, I'd be entitled to a far greater loan. My parents are divorced (obviously) bur we all live in the same city, so it wouldn't be hard to say I lived with her. Do they check child benefit payments and things like that to see who you really live with?

    Thanks in advance

    If your parents live apart then you choose which of them will support your application.

    Hi choccymilk,

    You should definitely inform us of your correct living location as this could potentially hinder your application further down the line if there was to be any checks done with regards to your living location.

    Warm regards.
