Would anyone know if the household income threshold for EMA rises each year with inflation?

For 2018/2019 applications the threshold for 1 child was £20500 based on 2016/2017 income.

My DD will be applying in September and my household income is for 2018/2019 is on target to be £21500.

I'm just curious to see if anyone knows what the thresholds were for year 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 please?

I would hate my DD to miss out on the allowance because I earn marginally over the threshold. I have an option to pay an extra AVC to my company pension if it would bring me under it.

Thanks in advance.
