    Hi, eldest going to English University for first time in October. When does the application for maintenance loan get submitted and by whom? Do us parents complete it or is it the student and who arranges this? I know that the amount awarded depends on the
    Income of parents.My wife retires in September and as a result our family income will fall substantially.How can I
    ensure this change in circumstances so near to her University start date is taken into account so we receive the
    correct loan for our circumstances.
    Many thanks

    The student applies and nominates their parents to "support" their application.

    The parents then log in and provide income for tax year 2016/17

    If your household income is due to fall by 15% or more then in April the parents would also complete a CYI form (the forms are available in april here https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-f...i/2018-to-2019 ) to give estimated income for tax year 18/19. Given the retirement date I would expect you'll need to repeat this again next year as your income over the tax year 19/20 is likely to be lower again.
