     ·         Households in receipt of non-contributory means tested benefits and having 2 or more                  children below the age of 16;

·         Households having 2 or more children below the age of 16 with an income not exceeding  the NMW;

 

·         Non-single households eligible for non-contributory means tested age pension.
