SFE gaslighting students?

Have now come across a few cases where a student says his/her summer student finance instalment has not been paid because the college has closed during the outbreak.  But UC are still taking the income into account.

According to this very clear info on the SFE website, UC are right and the student is imagining things.  There has been one short discussion thread about this, but otherwise the issue hasn’t been aired much.

Anyone else seeing cases like this? Did it turn out to be a problem at the SFE end?
