    Receiving full JSA even though working part time 13th Jul 17 at 12:29 PM
    I started a 6 hour per week job about 2 months ago and still get JSA I have shown job centre all my payslips (I'm not sure why they have gave me full JSA) has anyone else experienced this?

    No this doesn't sound right.

    You need to call them and tell them you are still receiving full JSA despite working part time.

    Are you sure it's full jsa. I used to work 6 hours a week and I got about £30 odd quid from jsa each week or £60 a fortnight

    It's not right, you shouldn't be claiming full JSA and working 6 hours per week. You'll also need to ring them as soon as you start full time work, as your JSA will then stop.
