I will be getting a full maintenance grant because we have low income. 

However, I am €21 over the limit to receive the special maintenance grant. There is a big difference of €2890 in the normal and special rate. 

Has anyone been over the limit by this little and still received the grant most suited to them?

It seems ridiculous that because the income is over €21 that I won't get the grant most suited to me. 

Any feedback welcome.

Hi Gf13,

Thanks for your message.

Unfortunately once you are over the income threshold for a certain rate of grant you would be considered ineligible to receive this rate. This applies regardless of how much the income figure exceeds the threshold.

If you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
