Non-Dependant Deduction

A deduction made to benefit payments based on the expected contribution from other adults (i.e. non-dependants) in the household. Usually, the rate of deduction is based on the income and circumstances of the non-dependant, but an alternative approach is the flat-rate non-dependant deduction, where the rate of deduction is the same for everyone deemed due to receive one.
