making a joint claim for universal credit
myself and my partner are caring for our adopted 7 year old girl. Im currently off sick with possible compassion fatigue and depression. My statutory sick pay is due to run out. We claim DLA for her and my partner gets carers allowance. I want to claim ESA, but it has to be a joint claim. My question is will my partner be expected to look for a job if he is a carer for my daughter. ?
