Housing Benefit - Non Dependant Deductions

If you have a non dependant living with you such as an adult son, daughter, relative or friend, we will take fixed amounts from your housing benefit.  This is based on the gross weekly income of the non-dependant and the amounts are given below.

We take deductions regardless of whether the non dependant contributes to your household or not.
