Default Payslips

Hi all. So my wife (who is American) has sent off her application and has received confirmation that it has been received at Sheffield. I have worked at my current job for just over 7 months, so she sent all 7 payslips. My gross basic salary is 1,681 per month.

However, the first payslip states "basic salary" as 1,386, which is below the minimum earning threshold. I have been informed by our Payroll Dept that this is because I started on the 7th of that month, so the stated basic salary is lower for that month only. All of the other 6 payslips clearly state 1,681, which covers the last 6 months. My wife has also provided my contract and letter from employer that confirms my gross annual salary as 1,681. The letter also clearly states that I started on the 7th of that month.

If the UKBA assessor only takes into account the last 6 months of statements (which technically they should do), then we should be fine. BUT I am concerned about the first statement as it is below the threshold, and other posts have stated that they will only take the lowest statement x12. I'm assuming that this won't matter, as all of the statements for the subsequent 6 months are above the threshold.

Am I correct in this assumption, or should my wife also send an email to Sheffield explaining this?

She really should have sent just the last 6 month's pay slips. That's all that is required for Category A. While technically they should consider the last 6 month's pay slips she also should have only sent 6 month's worth of pay slips if she is applying under Category A. There is a risk that they will consider that lowest pay slip. You can't make amendments or additions to your application after it's submitted so an email is unlikely to be acknowledged.

Thank you for your honest answer, although it's not what I wanted to hear. I wish I hadn't posted this now. I suppose all I can do now is play the waiting game.

I've just read on the UKBA site that if you are refused, then you are able to reapply. I suppose if worst comes to worst, I could take out a loan to cover the application fees and my wife could resend the application minus the lower payslip. Money is not an issue anymore. We just need to be together.

I really hope that the contract and letter from work stating my salary and start date PLUS the fact that there are clearly 7 payslips for 7 different months will be enough for them to work out what has happened

Yes, if you are refused you can reapply with the correct information but a refusal means your future application will need a little further scrutiny so it may take a bit longer.

All you can do at this point is wait.
