    Hi all,

    I know DLA & AA are disregarded as income for non deps but is Child Benefit also disregarded in the same way as it is for clmt/partner? I think the answer is no but I can’t find the regs to support this. Can anyone help please?

    Thank you 🙂


    No, CHB is counted in full.

    Obviously this will only potentially affect the level of deduction where the non-dep, or their partner, is counted as doing remunerative work.

    CHB is disregarded as part of the claimant’s income as per paragraph 65 of schedule 5 (HB Regs) but is not for non-deps as it does not appear in regulation 74(9).


    That’s brilliant, thank you for your help.
