    Hi I hope you get progress with the ill health retirement. 

    Make certsin sin you have all the medical evidence to say your wife is not fit for work & there is no possibility of her returning to work in the  foreseeable future. 

    Sort to to be negative has your wife's employer involved Occupational health / looked at reasonable adjustments so your wife can continue to work in some role with her current employer?

    There would be no premiums. There's only a premim for people who live alone and no-one receives for them.
