Adding carer and partner to existing claim
My future daughter in law had to claim universal credit in April, because of lockdown and as she was a vulnerable person. She now also had a major operation, now getting pip and can not at the moment work and needs a carer, so my son is moving in and becoming her carer as well as her boyfriend, he will not be working (he is self-employed at the moment) as he needs to care for her. will there be an interruption to her claim for universal credit as she will start claiming for him? will she just need to post on her sign-in page change of circumstance or will she need to make a new claim to get money as a couple and so he is exempt from work commitments? Advice welcome and instructions on how to do it would be appreciated.
