answer text <br /><p>Interest rates on student loans vary according to a number of factors, including a borrower's level of earnings, and whether they remain in contact with the Student Loans Company to ensure they are repaying when they are eligible to do so.</p><br /><p>The maximum interest rate for the post-2012 system is the Retail Price Index (RPI) figure plus 3%. The maximum rate applies whilst the borrower is studying; is the maximum interest rate for those borrowers earning £41,000 and over; and is the default interest rate for those borrowers who fail to keep in touch with the Student Loans Company.</p><br /><p>Once a borrower is due to repay, a variable rate of interest will be charged, which is dependent upon income. Borrowers with an income of £21,000 or less will accrue interest at RPI. For a borrower with income greater than £21,000, a real rate of interest will be tapered in, reaching a maximum of RPI plus 3% at an income of £41,000 or more.</p><p><strong></strong></p> more like this

answer text <p /> <p>For claimants of Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support, income-related Employment and Support allowance or Pension Credit, half of any contributions towards an occupational or personal pension scheme are deducted from any income from employed earners’ employment taken into account when calculating entitlement. In the case of self-employed earners, half of all premiums paid into a personal pension scheme are deducted from the claimant’s income taken into account.</p><p> </p><p>For Universal Credit, earned income is only taken into account after allowing for 100% of pension contributions to appropriate schemes. Universal Credit is therefore intended to incentivise more people on a low income to put money aside to save for their later lives.</p><p> </p> more like this
