    Wrong P45 after JSA what to do? 7th Sep 17 at 9:36 PM
    Hi everyone,

    I got JSA only for 3 months about 2,5 years ago - but I just reviewed my tax of that year for another reason and I realised that the P45 that the DWP sent to me and to HMRC was wrong. Hence on my tax that year my JSA should be for 8 weeks but its only for 4.

    Was I responsible of giving them the right info? is it my fault or theirs ?

    How can I get now the right P45 so the HMRC can have the right amount that I received?

    Sadly errors are quite common. If eg a claim is closed in error by a JCP office they often send a P45 out, so for example even though a claimant claimed JA for a 3 month period, there may be two P45s for 6 week periods each. However you can write to a DWP BDC and request a P60 for that tax year.


    It isn't your fault.


    As I suggested it may be correct it's just that you have only been provided with one of the P45s the DWP produced.


    You can request your NICs record online. www.gov.uk/check-national-insurance-record


    That should show any omissions eg if the DWP failed to credit yourself with NICs for 2 weeks or more that will mean that year does not count towards your pension (until they rectify it). It's sadly quite common with JSA claimants who are sanctioned for 2 weeks.

    Thanks for toue reply.
    You are right. The issue was that by mistake they stopped the jsa and then they corrected that so the P45 they sent was wrong.

    I figured that because I was reviewing my p800 for that year and I saw that the p45 they sent me is the only info that hmrc has for my jsa claim.

    So I assume the never corrected that.

    What I do care is to correct that on my p800.

    How can I do that ?
    Should I ask for another p45 for them or a p60 ?

    Will they have it or they need to create it now ?

    Is it my responsibility to declare the right jsa on hmrc or theirs ?

    Thanks a lot

    Looking forward to your response

    Its their (the DWP's) error ie the info they provided you was incorrect. Sadly a lot are system generated when they close claims in error.


    Yes, request a P60. You can write to your local Benefit Delivery Centre or JCP Manager. They should respond in writing within 2 or 3 weeks.
