    Hi
    I have just finished my application and have noticed that student finance take into account the household income of the previous financial year.
    However I have read that it is possible to request a current year income form, if income has dropped below a certain percentage, but this cannot be done until April.
    I would just like to know if there is any point in sending off my declaration form if I am waiting for the current income form to come out or should I still send it?

    Hi Amber,

    As you've mentioned the Current Year Income forms will become available in April once the new tax year has started. To be reassessed on the 13/14 income information your household income will need to have decreased by at least 15% from the 11/12 tax year.

    You should definitely send back your declaration form back to us. By signing and returning this to us you are only confirming that you accept the terms and conditions of the loan part of your student finance.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi again Amber,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this!

    The declaration will be sent to you along with your initial entitlement letter. Once this has been created you can wait for it to arrive in the post of you can print off a copy from your online account by going to My Account then View Correspondence.

    The Current Year Income form is paper form and you'll be able to print it our from online once it's available later in April.

    Thanks,
    Mark-Lee
