How do I find my Student Support Number?

Your Student Support Number (SSN) is the unique identification number given to you by the Student Loans Company, Student Finance England/Wales/Northern Ireland, and your Local Education Authority (LEA).

It usually consists of four letters, followed by eight numbers and another letter (e.g. BRMM01234567A) and is quoted on most documents sent to you from the organisations mentioned above.

Your SSN will be printed on your 'University or College Payment Advice' letter, usually underneath the barcode at the top of the letter. Your SSN will be printed underneath the barcode on the top left-hand side of this letter.
You will also be able to find your Student Support Number by logging into your student finance account with the relevant organisation. If you cannot find your Student Support Number, you will need to contact your relevant student finance organisation (e.g. Student Finance England/Wales/Northern Ireland or Student Awards Agency Scotland) to find out what it is.
