So I've been sent a letter saying I'll get the minimum student loan but nothing else (it also says this on my application although I have just changed the uni so this has to be processed again). The problem is, my dad had a well paid job for six months of 2019 but has been redundant since June of that year (nearly two years). With his salary, I would only qualify for minimum maintenance loan but without, I should according to the calculator (I know this is only a rough guide) get around £6800 for the maintenance loan. Is the minimum loan what SFE have finalised as I am worried that they have not taken into account the fact he was made redundant 2 years ago. Thanks

Hi, we have taken his 2019/20 income into account.

If your household income has dropped by more than 15% then your parent(s) can complete a Current Year Income form to provide their estimated 2021/22 tax year income. If they do this, it's important they update us if their income changes throughout the year because at the end of the tax year we will ask them to provide the actual income they earned with evidence and if their actual income doesn't match the estimated income they provided then it could cause you to be overpaid and be required to pay money back. Your parent(s) can download this form and find out more information by clicking here https://media.slc.co.uk/sfe/currenty...ome/index.html

Thanks, Isaac

Hi so my parents have apparently filled this out already. Is it worth phoning student finance to try and sort this out?
