    Why can't people post in the EMA questions thread?!

    If they did this we'd have much less of the "wa wa I don't get EMA" comments.

    Its EMA some get it some dont, some people have rich parents, some dont. Some people have to provide for themselves and EMA provides a nice break from scrimping , some dont.

    going to hi-jack this thread a bit. my parents have split up recently and they are in the process of selling our house and will be purchasing their seperate houses soon. i plan on rotating between each house so my question is when looking at household income do i add both salaries together still or do i take an average?

    I'm sorry, but the fact your parents are divorced doesn't mean you get EMA. Mine are divorced and I don't get it!

    i havnt been payed ema scince the 3rd of july and havnt missed a day at school scince. is anyone else in this situation and what should i do?? no bonus either.
    If you've dropped a subject (im assuming ur in y12) then you wont get marked in and you have to go and sort that out. That was my case.
    But if it stopped after your exams then it could be that your school couldn't be bothered to sort it out. lol. Talk to them. GET YOUR MONEY, MAN!

    Seriously, just let it go. No amount of whining on a forum is going to change anything. OP asked for advice, not a bleeding lecture.
    Love that!

    Once again, stop whinging about not getting your free money for your free education.

    If you really needed it, you wouldn't have been able to go to school since you stopped getting paid it.

    Do the obvious thing, phone your school/email them. And Bonuses aren't until this friday.

    good post

    Agreed. I have said this before in another thread but EMA allowed me to go to prom, buy a year book and attend my advanced higher english trip to go and see Othello. These are things I would not have been able to do had I not recieved EMA.
    what? - government is really strugling atm - tax revenue is falling, the countries purse is under more and more strain - yet you have the audicity to say a ******* year book and a night out is money well spent - you cannot be serious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    lets say she is only earning a little more than minimum wage - im going to guess her salary as £15k a year - (complete guess)

    So that works out as an equivilant of £7.5k per person. (also bare in mind that they probably get a few other benefits and pay lower taxes).

    So lets compare this to a family of 6. Both parents working on the same salary of £20k a year. This gives £6.6k per year per person. (and alos bare in mind that they will be paying more taxes and a higher proportion of tax and probably entitled to less benefits), so even though the family income per person is less than situation 1 - they dont get EMA.

    My point being not only the whole idea of EMA is flawed but the whole system of how its given out is flawed

    Do you mean the third of July this year? If you do, there probably isn't much pount in persuing it.
