Hi there. If you are over 25 and living with a partner, we use the household income to assess for the higher rate of Maintenance Loan. If your sponsor does not want to give their income, then you would be awarded the basic rate of Maintenance Loan only. Thanks, Leah.

Thank you Leah,
Although it seems unfair if someone is in an abusive relationship which involves financial cohesive control.

Hi there. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. You would need to be separated in order for us not to use the income. With the current regulation's, we would require evidence of this. You may be best speaking with the university regarding your situation and see if they can offer support.

Thanks, Leah.
