Can you use UK fiancé's savings for support?

I remember reading 10 years ago about the UK being an exception to the support situation, where the UK fiancé could include their bank savings to help meet support requirements. Is that still true or has it since changed? If it is, where can I find further info on it?

The UK beneficiary can self sponsor if they have enough savings. No I-134 is needed in that case.

 

Since the decision is subjective, and the law only says the officer must be convinced the beneficiary will not become a public charge, you could always provide the sponsor's income and the beneficiary's savings as an option. It could work.

 

There are no specific amounts published. Convince the interviewer.

Any specific/average numbers? How much is enough for savings?

That is a lot 😄

Less could be accepted as sufficient, but nobody has ever said a specific lower figure was successful for them personally, so we don't know. I am aware of one who showed he had a contract to sell his home and was accepted to self sponsor. There was another couple who had a combination of USC with a part time job that fell short, UK beneficiary with ongoing income from the purchase of his apps, and $8000 in savings. But we don't know how much his app income brought in yearly.
