This may seem like an obvious question, but it's worth checking that you are definitely receiving the correct amount of student finance funding
For example, have you moved out of your parents' home into your own accommodation part-way through an academic year? If so, you need to make sure that Student Finance England know about this, as you should be eligible for the higher 'Elsewhere Rate' of Maintenance Loan, instead of the 'Parental Home' rate.
Some students are still entitled to government means-tested benefits while studying, for example Universal Credit. While most full-time students cannot claim, some can - mainly lone parent students and disabled students.
Also, have you informed Tax Credit Office that you are now a student? We often see students who were working prior to becoming a full-time student and have either given up work or dropped their hours of work in order to study. You need to inform the Tax Credit Office about your change of circumstances and drop in income, as this will affect the amount of Tax Credits you are eligible to receive. Simply call the Tax Credits Helpline (0845 300 3900) to discuss changes in circumstances with them.
