This is from the LSC manual:

1. Certain state benefits are disregarded when determining gross income or disposable income. The disregarded benefits are:
(a) The following payments under the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992 namely
i.Disability living allowance;
ii.Attendance allowance paid under Section 64 or Schedule 8 of the Act;
iii.Constant attendance allowance paid under Section 104 as an increase to disability pension;
iv.Invalid Care Allowance;
v.Council Tax benefit;
vi.Housing Benefit;
vii.Any payment made out of the social fund.
(b) Any back to work bonus under Section 26 of the Jobseekers Act 1995;

(c) Payments under the Community Care (Direct Payments) Act 1996;
(d) Exceptionally Severe Disablement Allowance paid under the Personal Injuries (Civilians) (Amendment) Scheme 1983;

(e) War and War widows pensions paid under the Naval, Military, Air Forces etc (Disability & Death) Service Pensions Order 1983;

(f) Any payment made out of the Independent Living Funds;

Google "LSC assessment excluded benefits" and it's the first one in the list.
