Yes. If you want income assessed loans then you need to provide updated income information (and evidence if asked) every year. SFE don’t assume that your household income will not change.

Is it too late to send a PFF2 form along with my Household income?

Hi Xemnas78,

If you have asked to be income assessed and the income provided has not increased since your previous application, there are other things that can affect the amount of support that you are receiving :

For example if you have changed from living elsewhere in the previous academic year to living at home with your parents.


or changed university from London to elsewhere in the UK.

or if you are in the final year of your course you will receive less support as only assessed until the last day of your final term, we don't include the summer holidays.

Check online, if you have not applied to be income assessed you will find the forms to change your application here

I have done this last year and everything was Okay, and then this year they reduced it, I know it's I have made my loan to be based on my Household income, hence I called student finance today and they told me that I just need to fill a pff2 form.

Hi Xemnas78,

You need to provide your household income every academic year as it is based on a different tax year.

You can be confident once reassessed, any additional entitlement for term one will be backdated and submitted as an additional payment, an interim payment.

Currently a PFF2 is taking 21 working days to process once received.

Thanks Rona
