    Jobseekers allowance for over 60s 3rd Apr 11 at 10:26 PM
    Right then, I am 60 years old, have never claimed a bean in my life and was self employed for 40 years with all tax and NHi contributions up to date.

    I gave up my business a couple of years ago.. I just felt worn out, no specific illness or injury, just had enough..

    I own my own home and have about 50k in savings plus receive 110 a month personal pension..

    I work as a TV "extra" about one day a month, which earns about 80 a time .

    I can see that if I live to a decent age, my savings are not going to last... SO...If I go along and sign on for jobseekers allowance, am I likely to get any ??? and will they seriously expect to find me work at my age....?
