TOPIC: Job seekers inccome support

Job seekers inccome support 5 years 11 months ago #73075

  • marijo
my partners made redundant and wasnt paid for past month. He got a letter to apply from a government scheme to get his back dated salary.

2 Questions:
1. Do you need to apply for JSA to get this.
2. Does applying for JSA mean you apply for income support as online form says we could be entitled. I dont want to go down this route as previous experience it very upsetting, intrusive and a waste of time. Can you apply for just JSA contribution based?

thanks

I am sorry but JSA is not one of the benefits that B&W can provide support with.

Are best advice would be for you to contact your local CAB or Welfare Rights office.
