    Hiya! So you have to take my partners income into account as we have been living together for nearly two years and you will base my entitlement on his earnings including benefits inkind. As far as I'm aware, if his kids lived with us you would also take that into consideration, but because his kids live with their mom, they don't get taken into consideration? We pay over £8500 a year in maintenance... :eek:
    I hope I'm missing something, as it doesn't make sense that you will take his income but not his parental responsibilities into account.

    Please advise how I get this sorted.
    :confused:
    thanks !!

    Hi there,

    We recommend your partner calls us on 0300 100 0607. This will allow us to take some further information regarding the maintenance payments he makes, and if we can take this into account when calculating the level of student finance available to you.

    Thanks

    I did. They said " you would be better off if you were not together "....

    I have put his kids down as financially dependant, because they are.
