    Hi. I have been told that I need to take in a full breakdown of my student Finance entitlement for my housing benefit claim and that it can be found in an 'entitlement summary' section on my online account. However, I can't find this section. I have taken in my entitlement award letter and a printout of what payments I'll be receiving but I have been told that these are not sufficient.

    Hi Kaybob86,

    You can obtain a full breakdown of your entitlement by logging into your online account & printing this information. This can be used as evidence for benefit purposes by Local Authorities , DWP & Job Centres.

    You can print off the required information from your online account,

    First of all if you click on your ' View Payments 'tab,

    then where you see a box displaying , Your application has been approved
    To see how much finance you can get - view your entitlement summary

    By clicking on the 'Entitlement Summary' you will be able to view and print the information.

    The wording on the entitlement breakdown has been signed off by the DWP and they will accept this as evidence of the customers award.


    Thanks Rona
