You must include statements from all accounts you hold. Even if the accounts are empty or have not been used in a long time.

The statements must be from the last 6 months.

The last date on the statement must be less than 28 days old, up until the date you give the evidence to your caseworker.

-For example, if you give your bank statements to your caseworker on the 30th October, the latest date from the bank statement must not be before the 2nd of October.

 

INCOMINGS AND OUTGOINGS

You must show money coming in to your bank, and going out.

Any incoming or outgoing money above £50 must be explained.
