The following non-contributory benefits are paid, either by the DWP or HMRC, on the basis of claimants’ circumstances, needs and means and are discussed no further. (The high income benefit charge is discussed ¶148-530):

Attendance Allowance

Carer’s Allowance

Child Benefit

Child Tax Credit

Christmas Bonus for pensioners

Cold Weather Payments

Community Care Grants

Council Tax Benefit

Disability Living Allowance – being phased out and replaced by Personal Independence Payment
