Hello everyone. I'm applying using set m. I understand that the application usually asks for 6 months of wage slips, but when answering the question around if the pay has been consistent, if you select no, it will then ask for 12 months of wage slips.

My partner just got a pay rise in June and has previously received overtime throughout the last few months. He has always earned over the minimum even without the overtime (his base pay meets the requirement), the issue being he only started this job in October of last year which means he doesn't have 12 months of wage slips from this employer. Can anyone advise what to do here? Should we use his last employer for the final one or?

Also his wage slips are online and while they state his employer at the bottom, its not letter headed with his employer, does this mean they'll need to be signed with a letter to be verified? What needs to be included in the employer letter?

Do bank statements sent via the post still have to be stamped and signed?


Many thanks for your help guys.

I was in a similar situation for a previous application - My understanding of the actual law here is that really all they want to know is that you have been earning over the threshold for the last 6 months, rather than that you've actually been earning exactly the same amount. Hopefully someone else can confirm this.

(When I applied in this situation, I just stated the lower amount I'd earned in the last 6 months, before the pay rise).

From https://www.gov.uk/uk-family-visa/proof-income

The employer’s letter should confirm:
  • you or your partner are employed there
  • the job title or position you or your partner hold
  • how long you or your partner have worked there
  • the type of contract (for example, permanent, fixed term)
  • what you or your partner earn before tax and National Insurance
  • how long you or your partner have been paid your current salary
  • the payslips are genuine

Probably a good idea for the letter to confirm the payslip amounts, and that they are authentic, and perhaps to see if you can get the printouts of the payslips stamped and signed.

In my experience & from what I've read, original bank statements on official stationery sent by post are fine on their own. The amounts on them should match what's shown on the payslips.
