I began my course in 2011 when the repayment threshold was £17,775 but left University in 2014 when the treshold was then £21,000.

I went to uni in 2009-2010 I know my repayment threshold is 15000 so since I left I have been paying it back. The last 3 years I got a job as cabin crew and I earn a set salary with no commission. however I do get an additional hourly payment which is for food and drink while I!!!8217;m away as I have to buy all my own meals. This on my wage slip get added onto my overall earning and I!!!8217;m finding the student loan company are adjusting my payments each month adding it onto my basic salary and I!!!8217;m paying more. Am I overpaying?

I get paid weekly so I always get over deducted.
On 2015 I earned £18,677 and got £391 deducted. The threshold for the year was £17,335. I wrote to SLC about being over deducted and to see if I could get a refund for what was over deducted. Their reply was they dont give part refunds, only full refunds if it was under the threshold.
Disappointing to hear.

Hi, my husband has paid off his student loan but unbeknown to us it was paid off a year ago. He is due a refund of over £2500 shortly but does he need to pay tax on the refund? Thank you.

My partner graduated in June/July 17 which means he shouldn't be paying his student loans back until April 2018.
However he started repaying in July 2016.
He switched from Full time learning to part time learning mid way through (same uni, same course, just a simple change from FT to PT)
I have rang the repayments line and been passed from pillar to post and established a couple of things;
- Student finance England put him down as 'WITHDRAWN' when he switched from Full time. Therefore having two graduation dates and two repayment dates.
- After many phone calls with SLC & SFE they finally referred his case to a 'Tier 2 assessor' at SFE to get this incorrect 'withdrawal' changed. This happened no problem and he received a confirmation email from the 'Teir 2 assessor' confirming the changes has been made
- It was then sat with the 'SLC repayments admin team' to update the correct graduation date in order for the refund to be made.
- I have then spoken to someone today at SLC who has advised even though he didn't withdraw from the course and he simply switched from full time to part time he must start repaying the full time loan back as normal.
is this correct?
I understand the FT & PT funding pots are separate but surely he should not have been made to pay his full time loans back before he graduated from the course?
Has anyone been in the situation or can offer advise?
