Housing Benefits Changes
Changes were introduced from April 2011 which could affect all Housing and Council Tax Benefits customers, including Council tenants.
Non-dependant deductions will increase. Housing and Council Tax Benefit may be reduced if a 'non dependant' lives in your house.
A non dependant is another adult aged 18 or over, living with the person (or couple) claiming Housing/Council Tax Benefit. For example, a grown up son or daughter.
