My dad has been trying to login into his student finance account so he can support my application however it keeps saying that his account has been locked so he has to reset it, and whenever he does that it says
'An unknown error has caused the application to stop working.
The information you entered on the last page may not have saved correctly. This could be a temporary error. You can try again later (we suggest you allow a couple of hours). If you continue to see this message when you try again, please contact Student Finance England.'

I have the same problem (am a parent). I keep getting an error because I was trying to set up a new account when apparently I should have been using the same CRN I used for my own student loan 26 years ago! Surprisingly enough I seem to have forgotten that CRN!I can't pass the security questions to reset my password or get my CRN as I can't remember the address and postcode I used 26 years ago.Parents beware - if you EVER had a student loan, you have to use that old CRN. Hope you have better records than I do.

I am just starting the student finance application process as a parent and obviously everything is up in the air with coronavirus I too am in the same situation where I cannot log in having been a student from 20 odd years ago. Thing is the phone lines are not responding as the offices are closed and there is no email address. Any ideas?

Hi I'm having the same problems - I tried to log in to support my son's application and it says I have an account but obviously I can't remember log on details if I ever had any back in the 1990's before computers were widely used! So I tried the phone line which it says is now open but only for urgent enquiries...the phone line says you can use it to reset password and logon details, but asks for a CRN as a starting point - but I don't know what that is as can't find original paperwork from 90's. The phone line won't do anything without this CRN just goes around on a loop asking for the CRN! Argh. Help!

Hello. I had the same issue as a parent. I got through on the phone line but also could not remember the details of my own student loan from 1990 (unsurprisingly!) I was asked to write a letter (not email) to SLC giving my full name, address, email and date of birth and they said that within 14 days of receipt of this, they would email me a link to reset my account. Only 10 days have passed so I can’t report on whether the system works yet. (They also said that because my son had applied for finance before the cut off date, his application would still be guaranteed even though my part wouldn’t be filled in before the May 22nd deadline.)

If you need help with this call the sfe landline and then when the automated call asks for your customer reference number just say ‘I don’t know’ and it should skip this go through straight to student finance who you can talk to which might take a while as there are a lot of people calling right now. But they should send you a temporary password and memorable password to your email which you can use to log in

If you press option 1 then press option 2 it won't ask for any reference number.
Thanks, Isaac
