Do you fall within the new student finance system? Then your income has no effect on your student finance.
Only if you still fall within the old student finance system an additional earnings threshold applies to you. If you exceed this threshold, you must temporarily stop your student finance and your student travel product.
How high is the additional earnings threshold?
The maximum amount for additional earnings did not apply in 2020. Any earnings in 2020 will not affect your student finance.
In 2021, you can earn a maximum of € 15,415.63. This refers to your gross income or taxable wage.
Stopping your student finance
- Log in to Mijn DUO to stop your student finance. Do so the month before you exceed the additional earnings threshold.
- Go to 'Mijn producten' and choose 'Studiefinanciering'.
- Click on 'Studiefinanciering stopzetten' and then 'Ik ben over de bijverdiengrens heen gegaan, of ik ga daar overheen'.
- Cancel your student travel product at a pick-up device. If you do not do this in time, it will cost you money.
If you cannot log in to Mijn DUO, use the form Wijzigingen student.
Consequences of too much income
If you exceed the additional earnings threshold without stopping your student finance and student travel product, you will have to repay the amount that you earned above the threshold. You will never have to repay more than the amount of the basic grant, supplementary grant and student travel product that you received in that year.
