Non-Dependant Deductions

What is a non-dependant?

A non-dependant is any other adult living in the household other than the claimant or partner, this is often an adult son / daughter or elderly relative.

What are non-dependant deductions?

If you have other adults in the household who should make a contribution towards living expenses, deductions can be made from your benefit entitlement / reduction .

The deductions are made at varying rates depending on the level of the non-dependant's income. The deductions are made regardless of whether or not the non-dependant actually pays anything to the claimant. The tables below show the non-dependant deductions that are made from Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction, relative to the level of a non-dependant's income.  They also show the circumstances in which no non-dependant deduction is made.

The dedcutions can be made to both Housing Benefit and Council Tax benefit entitlements.
