Funds for your Tier 4 dependant

Funds for your Tier 4 dependant

How much money does your dependant need to show?

Each dependant will need to show a minimum of £845 for every month of your immigration permission you have been granted (if your dependants are applying after you have received your permission) or will be granted (if your dependants are applying at the same time as you) up to a maximum of 9 months (£7605)

Who can show the funds?

The funds can be shown in the student's name or the dependant's name. If your child is your dependant, the funds can also be shown in the child's other parent's account.

Evidence of available funds

The funds must be shown for a minimum of 28 consecutive days, the evidence should be in the format which meets the Tier 4 requirements

Financial sponsorship

If your dependant's living expenses are also being covered by your financial sponsor, they can provide an official financial sponsorship letter which contains all of the required details.

We are aware that the PBS dependant application form does not currently provide the option for your dependant to say that they are financially sponsored by your official financial sponsor. We therefore recommend that your dependant explains this in the 'additional information' section of the application form and includes a explanatory cover letter with their supporting documents.
