Hours reduced but not cut completely!!

Hi All.
My wife currently works 2 days a week, 1 day in each in two separate companies. 9hrs in each company, so 18hrs per week in total.
She also claims carers for our son who has special needs.

One company has to close over the current crisis so she will now be reduced to 1 day a week (9hrs) and the other company looks like following suit.

Is there any payment she can claim as I'm unsure if she can claim the current covid-19 payment since she only works 2 days per week.

I'm in full time employment myself so am unsure how that would effect her claim.

Thanks

She can’t claim for anything as she’s already getting Carers. If she’s on reduced Carers due to a combination of her income and yours then she should write them to inform them that she’s down one days pay and she might get a slight increase.
