How does "expected income" affect finance?
I started a course last year and received maintenance loan, maintenance grant, parents learning allowance & dependants grant.
I also sent a late application re childcare which I am waiting to hear about.
On the application for the coming year I un-ticked the adult dependants grant box, as my husband thought he'd found work, and and I didn't want to get overpaid. However, he has not had any work since April, and I'm kicking myself.
He hasn't got a great track record of putting food on the table, and losing that money will make things pretty difficult.
I have now re-applied for dependants grant, but don't know what my chances are. They've got a copy tax credits award which says our expected income is about £7.5k (guestimate from when husband was promised work).
Will student finance be likely to use that figure (or just go by last years actual income)?
If they did assume our household income to be £7.5k, could I expect to receive any dependants grant / childcare or not?
