Closed petition Stop using student finance loans as an income when claiming universal credit
Take off student finance and loans as an income when claiming universal credit. This is a loan which students have to pay back once studies have finished and working so students are paying twice for their studies when it is taken as an income for claiming universal credit
Why should University students be punished twice for studying and bettering themselves for their careers? Student finance and loans are exactly what it states and should not be classed as an income when they have to pay all this back. It is hard enough that universal credit is poor then having money deducted for having student loans.
