I am 21 years of age and have been financially independent for just over 3 years and wish to apply for eligibility for independent status, however, I have read up on the StandAlone website that evidence must be provided for 36 months' worth of financial independence. I became estranged from my mother for a period of time and moved house extensively throughout this which caused me to lose much of this evidence, such as payslips, letters from the Job Centre, etc. I simply don't have 36 months' worth of evidence. Would a letter from my employer confirming when I started work + as many payslips as I can send suffice? Has anyone been in similar circumstances or could share any advice? Would be really grateful as I'm having a panic right now, haha.
