    I sent my documents to SFL in early September 2017, i was asked for and sent addition evidence for my status the previous year.
    I only received the acknowledgement of this when i called.

    I commute from London to Kent daily and the cost is high, i do not receive any income benefits and have stopped working.

    It should not take so long for SFL to respond to applications surely.

    I will be back here on the 12/10/2017 to confirm if this has been done. I assume i will have to wait for another 6 - 8 weeks before payment is made if application successful.

    Hi Tanya W,

    Assuming your application has been approved and the Department for Work and Pensions confirm that your National Insurance number is valid and the University has confirmed your registration, the payment will be processed into your bank account within 3-5 working days.

    Thanks

    After a few calls to SFE, i received a notice that i am entitled to a busary from my University. Nothing was mentioned about my student loan and /or student maintenance applications.

    Do i need to wait and hope to hear from SFE in respect of the 2 outstanding matters or do i call them.

    (P.S it is very expensive to get through to SFE, due to the charges and call waiting times)
