So I live with my mum and her partner, and claimed their salaries on Student Finance.

Her partner earns a lot, so I don't get anywhere near enough money to live by. But he doesn't give me any money, nor would I expect him to. We aren't close and it wouldn't be fair on him.

It is my parents, neither of whom earn much, who provide me with the extra money I need - as bank statements could prove. But both of them are struggling.

Is there any way to take my mum's partner off my student finance and replace him with my dad?

Hello Emly,

As you are living with your Mum & her partner then it is the Household Income we would take into consideration.

We would not be able to remove his income from the assessment as he contributes to the household even if he doesn't offer you any finances personally.

Thanks
