    My dad retired last year before i started my course at university and therefore the household income has decreased greatly from what it previously was. However, my dad received a large lump sum when he retired, so my question is is this lump sum supposed to be taken into consideration by student finance? As far as we are aware this money isn't taxable and people with similar circumstances have received the maximum payment from student finance, whilst i am receiving the minimum. The tax office have agreed it shouldn't be taken into consideration as it is not taxable, though SF are telling us it is.
    Any help would be great, thanks!

    Just realised i posted this into the wrong forum -_-
