Anw survivor benefit
What we mean by 'living with a partner'
The SVB considers that you are living with a partner if:
- you live in the same house with someone who is 18 or older, and
- you share the household costs or
look after each other.
We refer to the person you share a house with as your 'partner'. This can be your husband, wife or friend, or a brother, sister, or grandchild.
If you start living with a partner, your Anw benefit will stop.
If you live in the same house as another person, you can continue receiving Anw benefit in the following cases:
- you have a commercial relationship;
- you live with your child;
- you live with a grandchild under 18;
- you start living with someone in order to care for them, or because you need care.
