Financial Support Evidence We Accept

As part of ESFA guidelines, the Learner Support Fund must be awarded on eligibility through household income. We must gather the correct income evidence of claimants and the people they live with in order to assess a household income.

Failure to supply any evidence that the online application or s staff member may request will result in a delay to an application being completed.

See the different evidence types available below that may relate to your circumstance;

– All the pages of the 2021/22 Tax Credit Letter.

-Three most recent wage slips with name and address.

-Benefit letter or bank statement dated within three months that includes name and address (i.e Income Support, Employment Support Allowance, Job Seekers’ Allowance.)

-Self-assessment tax calculation or certified accounts.

– P60 Form.

– Universal Credit screenshots/ print outs of the three most recent payment statements (this information can be found on your Universal Credit online account. Each statement needs to show; Name and address, payment for that month, Standard Allowance and any Child Benefit and Earned income.)

We DO NOT accept bank statements as evidence for Universal Credit.

– Annual Pension statement or Pension Payment plan.
