    I have a lady who is making a claim for Council Tax benefit but am confused how I should assess her income

    She has been awarded £30,000 maintenance per year for the 2 children which is the easy part. However she has been £35,000 spousal allowance and I am not sure how this should be treated for benefit purposes

    Any guidance?!!

    It’s income with a £15pw disregard

    Assuming, irrespective of labelling, it is maintenance and also assuming the Family Premium is payable, I agree with Chris. Para 47 of Sch 5 applies (HB – working age).
