SFE is giving minimum maintenance despite being estranged

I’ve applied for the next academic year’s SFE and have been accepted for minimum maintenance loan despite being estranged. If I fill out the estrangement form will this likely change?
Initial award amount will always be the minimum - that’s just the first step to say you’re entitled to a loan.
It takes 6-8 weeks for SFE to assess evidence and household income information. Once that’s done your loan will be increased.
Hi helpthegonk1,

We will need to process the Estrangement form before we can fully income assess your application for the maximum amount
