    Hi

    Im a bit confused with the finance application.
    Im 30 years old, moved back with my parents a few years ago. My parents do not support me in any way.

    So when I apply and select living with parents it asks for the annual household income. My parents will not share their income with me, as I am not dependant on them.

    Would I be ok just putting my on income?

    Thanks for the help

    Hi there.

    We would only need to look at your income. Once you are over 25 you are classed as independent and we do not take into consideration your parent's earnings.

    Thanks.

    I have just moved back home after me and my OH have split up. I am now going to be going back to my parents and I start Uni in september. I am 26 so again does the same apply for me just my income gets looked at?? do my parents incomes have to go onto the application anyway though. As I am awaiting the student finance applications to go live.

    Many Thanks
