    Hi

    I sent and evidence, and STF received it on the 21st of September. My application has been approved and my status is "payments are ready to be made" however, my payments are still blocked. When I first called they said they have to process the evidence and for the Migrant Worker Team it took 28 days on that day. When I called up second and third time I've been told 33 and 36 working days. My question is that why does it take so long for the Migrant Worker Team to process and information when my application has already been approved?

    Student Finance meant to support up students but because I haven't still be paid I can't attend my classes as I can't afford to commute.

    Please help me with some information, or where I could turn with my case.

    Thank you.

    Hi Dominika,

    The timescales we give out are expected and subject to change especially at our peak times.

    You can be approved provisionally but we still require evidence of the continued employment before we can actually release the payment which would seem to be the case here.

    Once the evidence has been approved then your payments will go from blocked to approved then it will be paid.

    Warm regards,

    Shaun.
