Grants for dependants: calculating the amount payable

77.—(1) The amount of GfD payable to an eligible student in respect of an academic year is calculated by applying the following steps—

Step 1

Aggregate—

(a)the eligible student’s household income calculated under Part 2 of Schedule 3,

(b)if not already taken into account as part of the eligible student’s household income, the residual income of the eligible student’s adult dependant for the applicable financial year calculated under Chapter 2 of Part 4 of Schedule 3, and

(c)the net income of the eligible student’s dependent children for the applicable financial year calculated under Part 5 of Schedule 3.

Step 2

Deduct the following amounts from the aggregated total calculated under Step 1—

(a)£6,159, where the eligible student has no dependent children;

(b)£8,473, where the eligible student is not a lone parent and has one dependent child;

(c)£9,632, where the eligible student—

(i)is not a lone parent and has more than one dependent child, or

(ii)is a lone parent and has one dependent child;

(d)£10,797, where the eligible student is a lone parent and has more than one dependent child.

The result is the net total.

Step 3

Add up the maximum amounts of each GfD for which the eligible student qualifies.

The result is the aggregated maximums.

Step 4

(a)If the net total under Step 2 is nil or a negative amount, the amount payable is—

(i)where the present course is a full-time course, the aggregated maximums arrived at under Step 3;

(ii)where the present course is a part-time course, the aggregated maximums arrived at under Step 3 reduced in accordance with paragraph (2).

(b)If the net total under Step 2 is equal to or exceeds the aggregated maximums arrived at under Step 3, the amount payable is nil.

(c)If the net total under Step 2 is a positive amount which is less than the aggregated maximums arrived at under Step 3, deduct the net total from the aggregated maximums so as to reduce the amount of GfDs payable in the following order until the net total is extinguished—

(i)first deduct the maximum amount of adult dependants grant for which the eligible student qualifies;

(ii)then deduct the maximum amount of childcare grant for which the student qualifies;

(iii)finally deduct the maximum amount of parents’ learning grant for which the student qualifies.

(d)Where sub-paragraph (c) of this Step applies, the amount remaining after that reduction is—

(i)the amount payable where the present course is a full-time course;

(ii)the amount to be reduced in accordance with paragraph (2) where the present course is a part-time course.

(2) If the eligible student’s present course is a part-time course, the amount of GfD payable is the amount referred to in paragraph (a)(ii) or (d)(ii) of Step 4 of paragraph (1) multiplied by—

(a)50%, where the intensity of study for the current academic year is at least 50% but less than 60%;

(b)60%, where the intensity of study for the current academic year is at least 60% but less than 75%;

(c)75%, where the intensity of study for the current academic year is 75% or more.

(3) Where the amount of GfD payable as a result of Step 4 of paragraph (1) or, as the case may be, paragraph (2), is an amount of parents’ learning grant which is more than £0.01 but less than £50, the amount payable is £50.

(4) This regulation is subject to regulations 78 and 79.
