JSA as a house husband?

Hi guys,

Quick question.

My wife is expecting and works full time and I have a job but its casual and it really died down.

After her maternity cover she will return to work and I will become a house husband.

My question is can I claim "contribution based JSA" when a house husband as I would actively still be seeking work even if it only just covered childcare costs?

If not it doesnt matter just interested.
