    See http://media.slc.co.uk/sfe/1617/ft/s...orm_1617_d.pdf
    Maintenance payments are not included in the parental income assessment.

    A student who is also a parent would declare maintenance income.

    Thanks, that's most helpful. SFE told me it was taxable income and had to be declared!

    Hi there.

    If you're referring to child maintenance then this is not actually the parents income, it is actually the child in questions unearned income.

    These should be included in section 6 of the above application under 'your dependants'

    Thanks.

    Thank you for your comment. The maintenance I receive is for my other dependant children and myself.
