A non-dependant is any person over the age of 18 years, who normally lives with the claimant other than a partner, dependant child, joint tenant or a sub-tenant.
 
For Council Tax Support purposes, where a non-dependant person is in a household the Council Tax Support Regulations assume, that they should be capable of making a form of contribution to the household expenses and therefore a deduction is made from a claimants weekly benefit to take account of this contribution.
