DWP Benefits

When calculating for change in circumstances; when adding my Son as non dependent,
they take away additional £50 per week! Just because my son is the calculation:! Yet if he was a lodger
and the amount is much lower of deduction!:thinking: This is discrimination in my view, as why is it different rate of deduction (making my payment lower) with my son, yet a ‘Lodger’ is different?

Does your son contribute to the household finances?
