EDUCATION MAINTENANCE ALLOWANCES (EMA) 2015/2016
CHANGE TO INCOME THRESHOLDS
You may be aware of a recent announcement relating to raising the income thresholds for EMA.
We have now received further information relating to these changes from the Scottish Government and can confirm that from 1 January 2016 the income thresholds will be as indicated below:
Central staff will review applications made by young people who have previously been refused EMA to identify those who may now be entitled as a result of the change to thresholds. These young people will be contacted directly by central staff.
Further information is available from the Council’s web-site www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/ema.
