    Hi, last May my mum's job was axed at the company she works for so she was forced to step down to a lower paying position. Because of this the company gave her a payout. I wasn't sure if this money would class as redundancy pay and have to be included within my SFE application. With it included I will only just have enough money for my accommodation.

    Thanks

    If it was last May then it wont count in the 2014/15 tax year (which finished on APril 5 2015) that's used for income assessment for this Autumn (unless you ask for your household income to be based in the 2016/17 tax year see http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...udents-2016-17 and http://media.slc.co.uk/sfe/1617/ft/sfe_cyi_1617_d.pdf )
