I was just wondering what my fiancée actually has to earn per year to qualify as being able to support me? It's so confusing!

He's only 24, just renting at the moment with housemates and he is a medical equipment sales rep and just finished his first year there so he's also about to get a raise. He doesn't know what he earns per year yet because he needs to work out his taxes first. I'm worried now because I read somewhere you need 5x the poverty level, I'm not even sure what the poverty level is!

Please help haha thanks

Is he self-employed or an employee? You said he would be getting a raise soon, so it sounds as if he is not self-employed, so I am not sure why he would need to wait until he did his taxes to know what his current annual income is.

Income for a household size of 2 is $19,662. To get the current annual income amount, multiply how much you make an hour by how many hours worked a week. Then, multiply that by 52 weeks, and that will give you the current annual income amount. For example, someone that makes $10 an hour and works full time at 40 hours a week makes $20,800 annually. You provide a letter from employer and/or recent pay stubs to prove that current income amount.

He is an employee but he makes commission on top of his salary so it's hard to know exactly what he makes

And that website was a lot of help! Thank you ☺️

And also is it income before tax? Because he pays all his taxes at the end of the year and then after that he will know what is left after tax.
