    Hi guys.

    I have problem understanding how to declare my household income for maintanence loan.

    Currently me and my girlfriend are living together with 3 housemates in a house. I'm 29 and she is 25. I'm working 30 hours a week, and she is working full time. When I'm going to start Uni, I will change to part time shift, and she will stay on full time.

    But the question is, whether I have to put my income into the aplication, or just hers. I'm a little confused because of that:

    This section tells you how we use the information you supply to decide how much student finance you can get. We’ll look at your household income which includes

    • for dependent students, your parents’ income (see note below)

    • for independent students, your husband, wife or civil partner’s income or your partner’s income if you’re over 25


    And that:


    You should include details of any taxable unearned income you receive from the following sources:

    • bank or building society gross interest

    • property, lettings or rent

    • dividends or investments

    • trusts or sponsorships

    • any other payment received for attending the course

    You should only include payments from an employer if you are being released from your employment by your employer to attend your course. Income from earnings during an academic year of your course (including holiday, evening or weekend work) doesn’t need to be declared


    Thank you very much in advance

    You just declare your girlfriends income from 2014/15 tax year.

    For you: "Income from earnings during an academic year of your course (including holiday, evening or weekend work) doesn’t need to be declared"

    Thank you for you response, just to clarify, when they ask me for household income, instead of giving them our combined wages, just put her's without mine?

    It seems stupid, when they specifically ask for combined and you put just your partner alone. What's the point of confusing people asking for combined one, I don't get it.

    Cheers
