Default FLR M - Category B Financial requirement help!

Hi All,

I am a dutch citizen with full settled status, living and working in the UK. I moved over from California in March 2019, where I had been living with my partner (we are not married/ civil partnership). When I moved back, my partner not wanting to spend time apart, left his job and came to the UK with me, as a visitor. He spent 5 months here, while I looked for a job in London. I started working in August 2019, and he returned to CA in September, so that we could apply for his visa (Unmarried Partner). As I have only been in employment since August 2019, we are applying under category B, taking into consideration my income over the past 12 months (at the date of application), in the US. We applied on October 7th.

From my job in the UK:
Current salary 51,000
Payslips from August 3908.05
Payslip from September 4250

From my employment in the US:
Paid rate $25 per hour, rising to $27 later that year.
October 7th - 20th $1,809.00
October 21st - November 3rd $2,018.75
November 4th - 17th $1,800.00
November 18th - December 1st $118.75
December 2nd - 15th $1,800.00
December 16th - 29th $2,009.38
December 26th - 26th $273.67
December 30th - January 12th $1,724.63
January 13th - 26th $1,755.00
January 27th - February 9th $1,134.00

Total $14,443.18

The exchange rate on Oct 7th 1 = $1.2287

This gives total income over the past 12 months to be 19,912.19

My question for everyone is - is this accurately calculated? There is hardly any information on the UK gov website on this, and it is so vague as to how the actual calculation is done. I need someone who has gone through a similar process or knows the ins and outs of the process to tell me if the above is calculated correctly.

The reason we are not waiting for an additional month of payslips from my current job is because we have never been apart this long since we got together and we just both want to start our lives together in the UK. We have ample evidence of all other requirements (proof of living together, photos, etc), this is the only thing I am lost on because I am not 100% certain.

Please help!
