Student Start-up Loan payments are coming

Keep an eye on your bank account - if you’ve applied for a Student Start-up Loan, you should receive it soon.

If you’re eligible for the Student Start-up Loan, and have applied to have it paid to you in the next loan period from 1 January to 30 June 2017, you’ll receive it with your first payment after 1 January 2017. If you’re a new student, you’ll need to wait for your course to start before you’re eligible.

Remember, the Student Start-up Loan is not paid automatically - you need to apply for it. You may have done this as part of your claim for payments. If not, you can do this easily online using your Centrelink online account through myGov.
