Eligibility Clarification

It has been brought to our attention that our previous information on the website about ILF eligibility criteria may have been misleading to some people.  The wording may have implied that we take earned income into account as part of the financial assessment process.

It is not the ILF's policy to take either a user's earned income, or their partner's earned income into account.

To clarify this the section on eligibility has been amended.  The new wording reads:

"You do not have to receive Income Support to qualify for an award from the Fund but your income, and that of your partner, if you have one (excluding any earned income) will be considered in any assessment."
