§ Mr. Rossi
Supplementary benefit is a means-tested benefit designed to provide support for people who are without resources or whose resources are insufficient to 289W meet their needs. In determining entitlement, therefore, account is normally taken of any income which a person has. Certain types of income are, however, subject to a disregard, in recognition of their special nature. The first £4 of a war disablement pension is disregarded, as is the whole of any constant attendance allowance paid with a war pension.
