If you’re in a couple
If you’re in a couple we count your partner’s income and assets too.
To get the amount we use as your income we:
- add what they earn to what you earn
- divide the total by 2.
To get the amount your assets are worth, we add up the value of all the following:
- assets in your name
- assets in their name
- assets in both of your names.
We then divide the total by 2.
