I'm also in college but only make 17k a year so I've used her income since she is willing to provide proof for me if need be. My dad, on the other hand, is very private about finances so I chose to leave out his income. I would say make sure that your "household income" is verifiable and accurate since you are legally allowed to report it.
I didn't know you could do that. Do you think it might be a good or bad idea to update some income information on let's say my Discover It card or something like that? Is that combined with your income or just completely your mom's?
The last thing I want is trouble with any lender so I want to be 100% sure. I'm reading that this can only apply if you're 21 or older though. I get quite a bit of money from my father regularly that I never include on any of my credit card applications that I've used towards paying credit cards and stuff.
