    Parent Contribution Query 4th Feb 19 at 4:03 PM
    I'm trying to get my head around how much my daughter could receive as her maintenance loan. I know the the parent;s income from previous year is required (2017-2018). What I unsure of is I receive a HM Forces pension and whether this is classed as my income, Any assistance is appreciated.

    If you are applying to SFE, Q1 asks this
    Do you expect to receive any income from salary, wages, taxable state benefits or from occupational or private pensions?
    It looks like it would be included.

    I got the info from the government website

    and opened the PDF at the bottom of the page.

    Hope this helps.

    Armed Forces pensions are counted as income. I had to include it when doing the paperwork for both my daughters.
