    I know the question is a bit weird but I could not word it in another way. When deciding Student Loan Entitlements, family income and personal income is taken into account. Would that be the income of my parents before tax or after tax?

    Also - just out of curiosity - would saved pocket money affect the amount you get (I don't have any but I'm just curious)?

    It's before tax but discounting pension contributions and a set amount for other dependent children.

    Your own savings and earnings aren't taken into account - only unearned income. That means any trust funds or rental income from your properties (ie it only affects rich kids)
