    part time work and jobseekers allowance 24th Feb 08 at 12:58 AM
    im getting jobseekers allowance and a part time job has come up which could lead to more work.. but it doesnt pay enough for me to live on... if i can still claim jobseekers allowance while doing this job then ill be okay to do it and hope that it leads to more hours quickly and/or ill still be looking for another part time job...

    the job is a lot less than 16 hours a week and pays about £70 per week before tax... which im guessing will work out about the same as my dole money!

    will i still be able to claim jsa? if so, will i get a reduction? does anyone know how much ill get?

    im trying to work out if its worth taking? and how much i could make between the job and the jsa to keep me going until i can get more hours or another job...

    can anyone advise?
