My case is quite complicated.
I applied for student finance in February this year and I've been approved .
Later on march I have been Pronounced disable. I've been told that I can apply for Special support element.Good,i called theSFE and asked them what I need to do in order to start the procedure for the extra support.
The lady on the phone asked me to upload the proof that I'm disabled and they will put it together with my maintenance application. Great.
So I don't need to do anything.Again ,Great.
Since then no info what's or ever. I called on the 03.04.23 to see what was going on.The lady on the phone told me they were waiting on my NI confirmation....I did explain to her that they have everything ,other ways I couldn't be approved for maintenance loan.
She assured me that in 24 to 48 hours everything will be on place and I will be able to see it in my SFE account. Nothing.Today I called again to check what the hell is going on .The lady on the phone told me that I need to book an assessment with .... she didn't know Who.in order to my case to be moved forward.I was shocked.On your site says that, I do not need to book an assessment unless you SFE decide I need to have one.
Than she said to send proof of my disability.......I did send this on 22.03.23
official document from DWP that I have LCWRA.(Disable)
She state that this is no proof and she needs letter from my GP. Than I realised that she have nothing to do with SFE and she doesn't know Nothing about finance especially with student finance, and she is just a phone operator.
So PLEASE help me with who I should contact to get some reasonable answers.
EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHOEVER ANSWER THE PHONE TELLS ME COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS
Once again Please advise me what to do.
Thank you in advance and have a great day
