If you get Guaranteed Credit:
You will get maximum Housing Benefit, with any non-dependent deductions taken away.
If you get Savings Credit only:
You will still be able to claim Housing Benefit, but the amount you will receive will depend on your income.
What is a non-dependant?
‘Non-dependant’ is a term used for any adult in the household, for example grown-up children, relatives, friends of the family and some lodgers.
The amount of Housing Benefit you get assumes that any non-dependants help you to pay the rent, so we will make a deduction based on their age, circumstances and income.
