I am a British citizen with 2 British kids, and currently claiming Universal Credit.
My wife arrived a few months ago on a Spousal Visa, and we registered her with the local Job centre, and she was given a unique ID, and then added on to my account.
She has subsequently got a part-time job, so we attempted to add her salary to my profile in the 'Change of Circumstances' section. However, we couldn't do this. We contacted U.C. and explained this and they said that she has no recourse to public funds - which we knew already - and, therefore, she should not be on the U.C. claim.
We had provided her account details etc in the message, and the next day she was removed from the joint account, and so it is now just my name on it again.
Is this correct? Obviously, we do not want to be accused of fraud!
I have read other posts but there seem to be some conflicting ideas.
Thanks in advance,
I did this previously, and it comes in approximately £290 p/m more than we currently get.JB007 wrote: ↑Thu May 02, 2019 8:42 amhttps://benefits-calculator.turn2us.org.uk/AboutYou
