    Hi,

    Any other benefits you could claim will depend on household income and circumstances. I'd advise you both to make an appointment at your local CAB for a full benefits check because it's impossible to advise anything on an internet forum without knowing all of your details.

    You maybe entitled to help with your rent but you won't be able to claim housing benefit unless you have more then 2 dependent children. All areas are now a full universal credit area, so it will have to be UC. If you claimed this then your tax credits will stop and it will become part of UC.
