Other adults who live with you

If you have other adults living with you, you may get less support.

They’re called non dependants and we may reduce your award by a set amount for each of them based on their gross income.

We won’t make a reduction if:

  • you get Attendance Allowance
  • you get Disability Living Allowance with care component
  • you get Personal Independence Payment with the daily living component
  • you are registered blind
  • the non-dependant is under 25, and on Income Support or Income based Job Seekers' Allowance
