Pff2

My parents don't quite get 2.3 on the pff2 form. It asks for uk income under the tax treshold. I've looked up that the tax threshold is £12570. Now this question could mean several things
A) income less than 12570 when this is all you earn, as you did not earn more than 12570(but I thought non-taxable income did not have to be declared?)
B)you fall within a tax bracket as in you earn more than 12570 so you select yes
C)you fall within a tax bracket earning more than 12570 so have income that is less than 12570 so you select yes

Another thing I'm confused on is the fact that if my parents were to fill in this form. At no point would they be asked to actually give any figures. I know everything is checked with HMRC but I would have thought they would have to enter what they thought they made in a year. Filling in the form and sections that they are asked to did not require my mom or dad to even look at their p60

Hi,

We do check figures with HMRC via their National Insurance number (Confirmed on the notes page of the PFF2).

2.3 is fairly straight forward, 'Did you receive any UK income that was under a tax threshold?' if they did then they tick yes, if not then it's no.

Thanks, Ross

Yes but what is meant by under? Like below the threshold?

OK thank you. Is it possible from my end to change the details of the person supporting my application. I forgot to put the middle name for my mum so its saying she can't be found and so she can't support my application online

Hi there,

If the details provided by the student don’t match with their sponsor(s) e.g., middle name has been included or excluded, the sponsor may be unable to link to the student’s application online and land on the following page: We then advise getting them to do the PFF2 form instead. This can be digitally uploaded onto your account or their account and updates in an estimated 20 working days: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/65afcca870218e000cb41f9a/sfe_pff2_form_2425_o.pdf Thanks, Jason

Thanks so do I upload it from my end as supporting evidence and how will student finance know not to wait for my parents to finish their forms?

If they can support online they should, if not do the PFF2 form which Jason provided and upload it to your upload evidence section.

Thanks, Ross

in section 6 q2 when it asks "do you want to support this student's application for student income" who is the student that they are referring to? myself? or the dependant? and if it is the dependant how can they support them if they are still in sixth form and not moving into university.

All the information is your parents details. They would put 'yes' if there are any other siblings attending university as well. Thanks, Jason

so in the instance that the dependant is neither in university currently or going to university this year would they select no, even if they are going to support that dependants application the following year when they are entering university
the question above this asks if the dependant is receiving financial support. would the 16-18 bursary given to some students be seen as such

That's correct. This is for 24/25 applications only. So they would put 'no' if the dependants aren't studying this year. Thanks, Jason

Hi there, yes, they'd declare where it's from (what the support is) and the amount. Thanks, Jason
