What is residual household income?

Residual household income is your household's gross income minus these allowances:

  • Pension contributions
  • £1,130 for each financially dependent child or eligible student in the household
  • If you're under 25 the household income is normally that of your parents or the parent you usually live with and their partner. If you're over 25 this would be the income of your partner.
