Adult Dependants Grant: The amount you can receive depends on your income and the income of your dependants (including your husband, wife or partner). You can get up to 2,695 a year. The grant is usually released in three installments, one at the start of each term, direct to the recipient's bank account. You do not have to pay back the grant, unless you have been overpaid because your households actual income and outgoings were different from those you gave in your application.
