    Made redundant, when can I claim JSA? 9th Feb 10 at 9:34 AM

    I've been working in a role to do with the swine flu pandemic, on a 6 month contract due to end in April, however this week I've been told that due to the pandemic ending my last day of work will be on Friday and instead I will recieve 4 weeks pay in lieu of notice.

    My question is when can I start claiming JSA as I won't recieve this payment til my wages at the end of Feb, can I claim from my first day unemployed (ie Monday) or do I have to wait until after I've recieved my redundancy payment?
