Student Loans Should Not Be Considered Income

Student Loans Should Not Be Considered Income

Change the Rules for housing Benefit Because student loans are not an income they are Excatly that a LOAN that has to be paid back

Why is this important?

Students are low income people and most of the money from student finance is to pay for things they actually need to pass their course , Books, Equipment , it also pays for research subjects

Student finance should not be considered as income by councils when assessing Housing Benefit

If HMRC dont consider it taxable income why do other depts consider it as income
