Whose income do I count? / What if I don’t have any income?

Most applicants will provide their own income, the income of their spouse or partner, and any income or benefits their children (under 18) receive. This includes income from your job, child support, benefits or assistance programs, etc.

Do not count income for roommates, or adult children (18 years or older) who live with you.

If you do not have any income of your own, you will need to ask the person supporting you to fill out a Financial Support Form (PDF). This will count as your income documentation required for your application. If you don’t have a printer, you can ask for a copy when you come into the office for your application steps.
