    No - if he's over 18 and not in full time education then he isn't a dependent and his income isn't counted in the household contribution calculation

    Hi,

    Your brother would not be classed as a child dependent on these grounds.

    Thanks,

    Hi Kelly,

    In regards to your child dependents you can declare income for example if they receive interest from savings or investments, and maintenance payments. However this is not required if they are under the age of 18 to be declared.

    Thanks,

    Mark
