I have saved enough to repay my daughter's student loan when she finishes next year. Should I repay or not. I am scared that she will not get employment and job centre will force her to use savings to live on. Should I move the lump sum into my account now

Hey everyone. Quick question.
I graduated in 2008 and my current job has never gone over the £21k threshold in any tax year. Sporadically since then I have occasionally paid student loan payments when I have received bonuses, overtime etc, although I still never went over the £21k threshold. Am I entitled to all of these payments back?
Thanks for any help!

No because the threshold isn't £21k if you started before 2012. It's £17,775.

My earnings haven't gone over £17,775 either...

I'd like to give some feedback on the original article.
Could you please clarify the situation for students that have a year out on placement.
Basically years 1, 2 & 4 studying at university and year 3 at work in industry.
By my understanding, the student should not be repaying any of the student loan whilst on placement as they are still registered as students with the university.
I have the feeling that if the month threshold is exceeded, then the money will be taken from the student.
Is this something that Martin could raise with the SLC? Is there no way that the SLC can double check with the University?
What's confusing is the SLC must know that the student has received a reduced maintenance loan and had their reduced tuition fees paid.
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
