Reply To: Free school meals criteria


I’ve got a bit of a random question here but… the FSM criteria states you can get FSM if you receive CTC (but not WTC, except for the 4 week run on etc) with an annual gross income of no more than £16,190.

My question is does the £16,190 income include unearned income such as benefits (CTC, CHB etc) or is it purely ‘earned’ income?
