Hi mate, hmm that's definitely different then! Another example of random inconsistency. Hard to say which case is correct tbh it could be that I got really lucky as the person refunding didn't check my history.

Perhaps email them fresh again with all details and just saying PSC staff said to email to get the refund and nothing more. Maybe a different person processes and refunds :wink:

Hi Saj, so you posted a letter to caseworker? What did you say/write specifically?

I was also told that IHS may not be refunded as it is your choice to vary your leave category. Did you get full amount back?
Dear cyborg001

I had spoken to several call handler at UKVI contact centre all of them advised me to write to your Caseworker at the address on the most recent correspondence you have received from the case working area.
In my case I made FLRO ist then varied to SET (LR). I varied my application after 18 days. I have received full refund.
So what I did I have sent one letter to Sheffield.This is because for FLRO I had received acknowledgement letter from Sheffield.
On the letter simply I had written my Name, Full address, Date of Birth,Nationality, IHS reference number case ID for FLRO and sent a copy of acknowledgement letter and Copy of ILR BRP. Then polite request them to refund IHS.
2nd letter to Liverpool this is because my SET (LR) was granted at Liverpool address. I have posted both letters via special delivery post.

This is how I got refund.
Many thanks

As per the above they shouldn't since I switched to ILR nearly 8 months after my spouse visa (which was granted) for 2.5 years! :?

But anyway, if this works then wonderful example of public sector efficiency and worth a shot for other PSC applicants as well.

If refused a refund on IHS, then complain and quote:
PEO Complaints Mailbox, Home Office 10 September 2015 wrote:If during their term of employment they become eligible for ILR and are successful with their application then any overlapping period of Leave will be refunded. However, a decision needs to have been taken on their application before this happens.
