Hello, My names Jeremy, and i work 16 hrs a week and care for my wife Hazel. Due to take a 3 month unpaid sabbatical from work to care for her full time with a view to giving up work completely. Can i claim universal credit to cover us financially during this period ?

Yes … no problem applying for UC … provided no problems on the NI front ?

Whether UC will be paid or not is another matter.

I presume a manor on which UC has rolled out ?
