How to add wife to universal credit claim

Post by sajnan » Mon Jul 08, 2024 7:06 pm

Hi
I am claiming UC but currently get only single rate over 25 as my wife was on spouse visa. She get her ILR last month how I can add her to my universal credit claim so we will get the couple allowance instead of single. I asked the same question in the journal more than a week ago in my uc account but no one replied as yet. Please advise

Thank you very much in advance

You just report change and add partner, she will go through the habitual residence test again, when she has ILR she will pass and the couple standard allowance should be awarded.

Remember that your spouse will need to complete a UC claim themselves, generate a joining code and you use that code to add your spouse to your claim.
