I think you mentioned your wife is in council housing? She may need to get a letter from the council agreeing that you can live in the house with her.

What other benefits is she receiving? Use this link to check for the ones she is receiving, and how to document those:

She would have received letters stating which benefits, how much, how long and where and how its paid. So she will have all the information!

The border agencies can easily check these with the Benefits agency, you will just have to fill in the forms as honestly as you can with the figures you have. Your wife should have some reference to benefits received if she has a bank account, as most benefits these days are paid that way. If she was paid by cheque then that is also easy, as she will know exactly what she gets, from where, and wherever she cash's it, be it the bank or post office will have a record as well.
