Apologies if this has been answered, I have searched.
I recently found out I was on repayment plan 1 with employer, when I should be on repayment plan 2. I have now changed this, easy peasy. However, When I contacted SLC the amount they were refunding me was not 9% of everything over £21k for tax yr 17/18, and 25k 18/19. I queried this with the 'somewhat inexperienced' call operator who said they have a maximum refund they can issue per month and it is £24.18. I have searched high and low, including the SLC website I can find nothing that mentions "a maximum refund". As far as I am aware this error was not my fault, I am payed via payroll, no voluntary payments whatsoever. It was only when I did some number crunching I spotted I was paying too much; its not obvious on any documentation from payslips, HMRC or SLC what plan you are on/should be. None of the systems sought to correct this for over 2 years. How do I go about getting the full refund?
Some more information on this or if anyone can tell me where to go next.

Apologies if someone has already asked this; as with PPI refunds, does anyone know why statutory interest of 8% isn’t applied automatically to SLC refunds? In effect, they’ve held on to money that could technically have been in use elsewhere, or earning interest in a savings account. I left university in 2005 and could, in theory, have a refund owed to me from as early as April 2007; over 11 years ago - a particularly long time for it not to be in my own account!

I've just a little question regarding reclaiming payments made before the April after graduation.
I used the SLC to fund a foundation degree (in my case, FdSc -- classed as higher education and worth 2/3rds of a BSc). I then continued to do a BSc "top-up" course to turn this into a full degree. Would the graduation date used for purposes of repayments be that of the foundation degree or that of the full degree?
I appreciate the article has the section "What if I studied another course after my first degree?", however I'm unsure whether foundation degrees would be classed under that...
My hunch is that they will be seen as two separate courses -- despite being related to each other -- therefore payments should have started the April after the first course.
Has anyone been in a similar situation?
Thanks for any help

I repaid my loan a few years ago now and was wondering if I would still be eligible to see if I can reclaim any money

Yes potentially but why would you want to? You'd still have to repay the money so repayments would start again!

I assume they mean overpayments made through PAYE after the loan had been repaid.
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
