    What age are you both?
    Do you have any children living with you?
    Do either of you have any disabilities?

    Sorry for the late reply i the worker am 34 and my partner is 30, we have a child and neither of us have any disabilities.
    I was just wondering what the minimum amount of hours are required to be eligible?

    I currently work 32 hours per week, but i could have sworn i read somewhere that there was a sneaky change in law where it is now 37 hours to be eligible i could be wrong.
