    JSA when giving up a job

    JSA when giving up a job 7th Sep 17 at 10:21 PM
    I am a single mother with a 10 year old.

    I know I am entitled to look for part time work 16 hours.

    If I take a job that is full time and it doesn't work out (ie I/my son are unable to cope with those hours) if I give up the job would I still be able to claim JSA as I was working more than required?

    Many thanks

    Others with more knowledge will be on later.

    Knowing the DWP, they'll say that you will have made yourself intentionally unemployed and you'll get nothing from them except NI credits.

    If I were to get sanctioned how does the sanction effect CB JSA.

    CB is paid for six months, sanction would be for 3 (give or take). Would I get six months payment after the sanctioned ended or only 3 months payments as the first three were on sanction?

    Would I be able to wait 3 months before even claiming to keep my JSA record clean?

    Did you have a look at those Gingerbread links I gave you on your other thread?

    Hopefully, someone with more knowledge about your question will come along too.

    Have you looked up Universal Credit?

    You will have a 'change of circumstances' if you move job / change hours. This will likely migrate your claim to Universal Credit
