Hi Annie, so to clarify, if one member of the family is working normally (i.e they work for the NHS) but the other cannot, they can’t apply?

It depends what the household income and assets are. You could have one partner working but on a low income, and so you’ll be eligible. You can always apply online to see – once you’ve input your household income and assets figures, it’ll tell you if you can get Universal Credit or not, so you’ll know on-the-spot if you’re eligible.
