TCSI Loan Monitoring: Student Tax File Number (TFN) Verification Live Data Report

How to read this report

The report shows higher education (HE) relevant students’ identifiers where a TFN is UNVERIFIED. By default, the report shows students delayed loans incurred prior to 1 July 2022 due to an UNVERIFIED TFN. Providers need to report the correct TFN in TCSI for these students with a HELP debt as a matter of priority.

The following table identifies the components that are used to construct the report:
