    HI,

    Universal credit maybe possible but that will depend on your household income, savings/capital. As Universal credit it a means tested benefit then you would need to claim as a couple.

    I'd advise you both the visit your local CAB for a full benefits check.

    Good afternoon @Kez70 and welcome to the community!

    As Poppy mentioned, it really depends on the individual household circumstances as well as household income and savings etc. 

    Have you taken a look at any calculators online?
