    I been waiting for weeks now, but I got confirmation that I will get both sets of money for uni and maintenance grant.
    However my issue/problem or what ever you want to call it is, why do they need to check something with pension department regarding my NI number and why it takes a week to process it, when everything's done electrically these days.

    so what I'm saying is, will my uni and I receive the money both the same set day or different days........?

    Hi Dan,

    All student's who apply to Student Finance for the first time have to have their national insurance number (NINO) check by department for work and pensions (DWP) once their application has been approved. The national insurance number is sent on the first available Wednesday after the application is approved ( the files only go weekly).
    You would be expect to receive your Maintenance Loan 3-5 working days after your national insurance number has be validated and your university have confirmed your registration to Student Finance.
    The university may not be paid at the same time, as tuition fees are scheduled differently.

    Thanks
