The student loan company have asked me to prove that I have

Customer Question

The student loan company have asked me to prove that I have no income by getting my husband to write to them confirming that he is supporting me. He says he won't on the grounds that he has no contract with them and that my student loan has nothing to do with him. They are threatening to fine me unless I provide proof that he is supporting me. I telephoned them and they asked how I was living if I had no income. I explained that I was living with my husband (of 36 years) but they insist that he must sign their form and write to them neither of which he will do. I am considering signing the form myself (pp my husband ) and writing the letter myself stating that I am being supported by him - I really do not see what else I can do. Can they fine me? How can I make another human being do anything? (I am 59 and not yet getting my pension, my husband is retired.)
