    HI and welcome,

    Universal Credit maybe possible but this will totally depend on your circumstances such as savings/capital of more than £16,000 will exclude you from claiming.

    Living with a partner that works will also depend on whether you're entitled to anything. Using a benefits calculator and putting all your details (and partner, if you have one) will tell you whether or not you're entitled to anything.

    Council tax reduction may also be possible but again it will depend on your circumstances. Contact your local council for this.
