    I wonder if you could help me. It's a long one.

    I have applied for Migrant worker SFE in July 2017. I have applied for tuition and maintenance lone and I have also lived and worked in UK since June 2015.

    So after I applied I received multiple letters asking me for a documents such as P60s, payslips and contract of employment. I provided all of these, so SFE approved my my fundings for both tuition and maintenance as well.
    I worked and lived in London and my uni is distant 3 hours away from there, so obviously I had to move to uni town and change thejob. So I moved found another job and UNI confirmed my attendance.

    SFE asked me to prove my employment after the 1st of sept and also send the payslip. I did so and I send my P45 and new contract of employment for 24hours a week.

    Now in the new job my 24 hours was never delivered, I worked there for 2,5 weeks. The first of 15 hours, second 26 hours and the last week of 21 hours. Than I had to leave as they were unorganised and never delivered what was promised. I found a new job within 2 weeks, now I work for 24 hours every week.

    Despite all this my SF has been approved for weeks, I have provided everything what was requested but my payments are still blocked.
    I spoke with one of SF advisers and was told to wait until the 1st of Nov, however the other day a letter came through confirming (again) all my finance with dates of payments which were meant to be made back in the October. But when I log into my account my payments are still blocked. On all the the letters and on my account, it says I am eligible for fundings, that everything has been confirmed and don't have to do anything now, but my payments are still block even though my evidence has been processed a days ago.
    Every time I call SF they tell me something else.
    It is incredibly frustrating as I have to pay a rent and bills and focus on UNI and work and I am waiting for something but have no idea for what.

    Thank you for your help in advance.
