Hi, I’m about to go into second year and my dad lost his job. However, when we applied for student finance he had a job. So now, my student maintenance loan is nowhere near enough for me to afford rent let alone bills and food etc... Am I now entitled to more loan? How do I go about this? I’m very panicked as uni starts soon and currently don’t have any money to pay rent.

Yes. Your parents need to complete the CYI form with estimated income for the 19/20 tax year. SFE will reassess your entitlement based on that estimate.

If the estimate is too high then in your May instalment SFE might try to take back any overpayment - it’s better to underestimate slightly and get a bit more in May than the other way around.
