Q:

How do you claim Jobseeker's Allowance?

A:

Jobseeker's Allowance can be claimed by getting in touch with the local Jobs and Benefits or Social Security Office. The purpose of Jobseeker's Allowance is to help those who are out of work but currently looking for employment or for those who work fewer than 16 hours per week.

Jobseeker's Allowance is a benefit for people resident in the United Kingdom. Applicants must be actively seeking work, older than 18 but younger than the state pension age, and not be in full-time education. The rates for the Jobseeker's Allowance vary depending on whether it is contribution based or income based. The former relies on making National Insurance contributions over the past two tax years, while the latter is based on income and savings.
