Annoyed and upset at student financeWatch
I sent my evidence one month ago about my estrangement from my mother which means she can’t provide any financial information. They JUST got back to me after a whole month of me constantly contacting them about an update for them to tell me that they can’t assess me as an independent student because now they need one about my biological a father and sent me a form to complete about my estrangement from him. It’s already August and they’re making my student finance process so much more slower and I doubt I’ll be able to get the right amount when uni comes around which is in just little over a month. do they think every ones parents are alive? They could’ve asked me this a loong time ago, they just asked me about my mother. If they had asked a long time ago about my father, I would’ve told them he passed away. And if I don’t get the right amount of maintenance loan before uni comes around, I will face a lot of Financial hardship. Why are they doing this??? It’s close to the date
Have you since told them he's passed away? A month is still quite a lomg time and fi you do fall on hardships at the beginning of term, your university will likely have a hardship fund.
it should be as simple as sending a copy of his death certificate to them, unfortunately, and I know it's silly they don't think that you might have a dead parent at 18 despite it being more common than most people would think about.
I told them today. This is the first time they’ve bought up my father
Are you saying I have to provide evidence of my fathers death? It was 11 years ago. I shouldn’t have to do this
Student Finance is done on the basis of parental income and they will need to check your fathers position even if you are estranged from your mother. You can order a copy on line and they come fairly quickly.
