    Student Loans

    After finally paying off my Student Loans from many moons ago, I made the final payment over the summer.

    I got a letter in this morning telling me that I'd OVER paid by almost £50 and to contact them to arrange the refund.

    I'm now quids in for around 50 smackers. Nice One!

    how much did you owe and how long did it take you to pay off (if you don't mind me asking?)

    I have nearly £12,000 to pay off, lol

    I had 3 loan accounts totalling about 7 grand. I kept deferring it for years though and although at that time the Interest was set at the rate of inflation it added about another grand and a half on interest by the time I started to repay it. I paid if off circa 1000+ a year so around 8 years all in.

    You and me both!

    I feel like Im going to be paying my back forever - to be fair its only been a few years.
    I have paid between £1-2K per year and am hoping to be clear by the time I retire ;-) ok maybe within 10 years

    Make sure you keep a close eye on them, I just assumed they'd stop taking money out of my pay when I'd paid it all off, but they ended up overcharging me by about £700 - and I only borrowed £1400 in the first place!

    haha why is that when they want their money they can suck it away from u no probs but when they have to return it u gotta write to them and do all sorts! :roll:
