all loans/grant approved
she just needs to sign form and give her bank details
she's travelling so can't sign the form although she may be able to log onto her account
any advice
am concerned the delay in getting the form back will delay the first payment

Has she given SF her 'permission' for you to discuss her application? I take it you've searched through their website - call them and see if you get the same answer two days running can get some clarification, although ime they're not terribly helpful...hmm

no she hassn't given them her permission
damn , should've thought of that before she left
they are awful to deal with on the phone ..if you can get through

I found them really helpful & quick to get through to on the phone last year.

She shpold be fine. DD2 signed her form late last year and she still got her loan in time, Can you phone and pretend to be her, I had to do that a few weeks ago to fine out something, But we had her customer number as we were helping her with her application this year,

Could you not forge her signature post it off to her and have her post it back?

she's backpacking around canada atm so difficult to pin her down to one place
will ring them tomorrow
mummee-thanks that's good to know your dd still got her £ in time

that form does have to be signed by the student & posted back, so you ringing up as her wouldn't help

Just get it done asap when she is back (if you can't forward it to her to sign & send back before then)

i am sure that when these forms went astray in the post when DC1 went to uni a couple of years back, it was possible to download them from the internet and sign them. If this is still the case, and you think DD could find somewhere that she could do this on her travels, why not ask student finance if she could fax them back? Otherwise, she could send them from the post office in whatever location she is in at the time.
