    I applied for student finance for a course starting sept 18, my application has been approved and I know how much maintenance loan I will be getting.

    I've had a letter to apply for the childcare grant, but no mention of PLA. Does this usually take longer to know the outcome? Do you get told if its been declined?

    My evidence that I sent in has been returned to me.

    From what I'm reading on other threads it seems its quite difficult to qualify for PLA, is there a 'cut off' income?

    Hi charlehen,

    If you have been awarded Parental Learning Allowance (PLA) you would be sent a new Notification of Entitlement . PLA and other Grants for Dependents (GFD'S) are assessed differently from the Maintenance Loan . They are assessed based on income and family circumstances to determine your eligibility .

    Thanks

    Louise
