It depends on whom you ask. Stylebooks and dictionaries are not in complete agreement on this one.
Most of the time, though, dictionaries and editors close the gap. So, for example, you would write “nonpayment” rather than “non-payment.”
One exception to that rule: If the “non” comes before a proper noun, a hyphen is usually best. Example: “non-U.S. citizen.”
