Document What evidence can I send to prove child maintenance payments?

Any of the following forms of evidence can be accepted to prove child maintenance payments:
  • If the maintenance payments have been set up through the Child Support Agency (CSA) or through a court order you should send either the CSA letter or the Court Maintenance Order.
     
  • If it is a voluntary agreement you will need to obtain a letter from the person making the payments. The letter should provide full details of the payments made.
Failure to provide any of the relevant evidence will result in the assessment of your application being delayed.

What do I need to send with my supporting evidence?

When sending any evidence, correspondence or paper applications you must include the following:
  • Student coversheet - You can print your student coversheet from the "Documents" section of your BOSS account. This contains your unique barcode reference which enables us to locate your BOSS record and link your documents to it.
  • Self-addressed pre-paid return envelope - This enables us to return your evidence to you. We recommend you pay Signed For or Special Delivery postage on this envelope so that you can track the return of your documents.
When posting anything to us, please also write your SBA reference number (you can obtain this from your student coversheet) in the first line of the postal address and your preferred return address on the back of the envelope that you are sending your documents in.

Failure to provide your student coversheet and a self-addressed envelope (if you're sending evidence to us) will result in the assessment of your application and the return of your documents being delayed. This could also possibly result in a delay to any payment of bursary due to you.
