                (a) Not available for new claimants since April 2004: new claimants apply for child tax credit instead.
                (b) From April 1998, new Lone Parent claimants receive the same premium as couples: the rates shown after this date apply to
                existing claimants only.
                (c) If both partners are severely disabled, the premium received is doubled.
                (d) Since 6 October 2003, pension credit has replaced income support for most people aged 60 or over, though in a small numbe
                cases, pensioner couple premiums are still payable when a claimant aged under 60 has a partner aged over 60.
