Non-dependant deductions 2017/18

A non-dependant is usually someone who lives with you, such as an adult son or daughter, relative or friend. Below are the non-dependant deductions for housing benefit and local council tax support for 2017/18.

Please note, there is no non-dependant deduction where the claimant or partner is in receipt of Disability Living Allowance with the care component or Attendance Allowance, or if they are registered blind or have recently regained sight.

For more information, please contact the benefits team.
