    Parent income for maintenance loan Question

    Parent income for maintenance loan Question 8th Feb 19 at 6:10 AM
    So my Son is in his 1st year at Uni now and the maintenance grant was based on my earnings in year 2016-2017.

    Now when he starts his 2nd year in Sept. What years Parental income will they use?

    The reason I ask is because my Income was a fair bit higher in 2017-2018 but this tax year 2018-2019 will be significantly lower, by more than the needed 15%, on both the previous years.

    Will I be able to ask them to use 2018-2019 Income so that he receives higher maintenance grant?

    Hope that all makes sense.
