*Residual household income is the gross taxable household income minus; pension contributions, and an allowable deduction of £1,130 for each other child or eligible student in the household. If you are under 25 the household income is normally that of your parents, or the parent you usually live with and their partner. If you are over 25 this would be the income of your partner.
