  • As part of the application process, applicants have to provide 3 months of bank statements for all their accounts or provide us access to their accounts via an Online Banking Portal. 
  • We check bank statements provided for information which may indicate that the applicant has other accounts. These checks include:  
    • We check to see if any stated income (like benefits) are present in the bank statement provided. If they are not, we request bank statements for the account which is receiving the income.   
    • We check for any bank transfers made from the account to another account in the applicant’s name. This can indicate a savings account which has not been declared.  
  • We also request financial information about a person’s spouse so we can assess the situation of the family. Children above 18 are not included in the grant provided, however they can apply separately if they need help.
