    JSA & Working Part Time

    JSA & Working Part Time 26th May 10 at 11:34 AM
    I am currently in receipt of JSA, Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit.

    I have just been having a look on the net for jobs and found something that interests me, it is only 15.5 hours per week though.

    If I were to go for this job would it affect the above? I have heard from some people that I would still receive all of my JSA as long as I work under 16 hours, is that right?? Seems a bit too good to be true!

    If someone could advise I'd be grateful, would be good just to get out and do something even if it's only for 15 hours!
