Parent's income

Do I need to include bonuses in my household income or just basic salary? Also, if there was a change of job half way through the last financial year should I just put current salary?
Hi there. Are you a student or a sponsor? What Academic Year are you applying to? Thanks, Leah.

I'm a parent and my son will be starting first year this September.
Also, does it make a difference to his entitlement if he get PIP?

Hi there,

If the bonuses were taxable then we'd say these should be included with your income. We'll also double-check the figures with HMRC to make sure, don't worry.

Yes, your son may be entitled to the Special Support Loan, which is a higher Maintenance Loan. If he uploads a copy of his most recent PIP letter we'll be able to asses him for this.

Thanks, Graeme
