In this very situation. I have an additional question related to this.

I first came to the UK in August 2019. But in March 2020 I changed my visa category and had to leave the UK and apply for it. So question is will my 1 year allowed time to drive restart from March 2020 to March 2021?
No.

Their visa expires on 5th July but unfortunately we have been told the flights are cancelled and we have been told to re book and it becomes difficult with current restrictions due to Covid 19.

In your case, the EEA national is not working ( is the EEA national exercising Treaty Rights at all? ). I was wondering that. She can't take UK benefits if she is not exercising treaty rights as a worker or has settled status. Because of the pandemic and the high numbers claiming, the DWP had to dr...

Re: Claiming benefits and spouse visa!

Adding that your wife being pregnant will not change any benefit calculation for you and 26k is likely too high to get any low income benefits (which Universal Credit is). Look to see if you can claim New Style Jobseeker's, (contribution based benefit for those who have worked) link above.

Re: Claiming benefits and spouse visa!

How many children have you got? As you don't have don't have any children: you might not get Universal Credit as your wife earns 26k. You cannot claim as a single person as that is benefit fraud. If you have worked for the previus two full tax years, look at perhaps claiming New Style Jobseekers as...

In fact, she’s still working full time and earning £26k per year.
Can someone advise please?
Thanks
Your wife's salary must be used in your claim, even if she cannot take public funds. Her salary and savings will reduce any amount you might be allowed. How many children have you got?
