Evening all.

Quick question, if anyone has any experience it would be a great help.

I pay CSA DD per month.

I'm off to get my hnd at college full time come September, but will be working the same part time hours.

Do i have to contact them?
Will they see my bursary and student loan as income?
Will i pay more/less as I'm a full time student?

Cheers :)

I can't say for certain, but I'm guessing they will not charge you less because you're a student.

From experience, bursaries/student loans are considered income, but I was only doing a national diploma, I'm not sure about higher! I'd say contact them anyways just to be sure :)

It depends if your payment is a DEO. If so then it could be considered, if no then less likely.

If your payment isn't a DEO than (at least under CS1) you're not obliged to inform them of a change in financial circumstances.
