Document Do I need to include a child that I have joint custody of or have been made responsible for?

For the purposes of the Low Income Scheme assessment, we class the person who has responsibility for a child or young person as:
  • The person receiving Child Benefit for the child / young person; or
  • Where Child Benefit is no longer in payment, the person who the child / young person usually lives with
If the above doesn't apply, you should still mention the child or young person on part 9 and provide details of who is in receipt of Child Benefit on behalf of the child. If Child Benefit is not in payment, please provide details of why.
