This sucks :(
I may be able to give advice.
Are you thinking of backdating your claim?
Have you just come out of full time education?
Are you required to fill in any extra forms?
but you almost certainly won't be given it unless someone in officialdom told you you couldn't claim from the earlier date.
because for some reason I'm listed as female on their system.
Hopefully it won't come to the claim though...I hated being on JSA for the 3 weeks I was on it.
I want to work :)
I can't remember them taking a picture last time.
The moment's passed...
a few weeks ago, the job cebtre was full of freaks and people who smelled really badly. I couldnt get out of there fast enough
Chin up mate!
it wasn't that bad.
The people at the Job Centre Plus were pretty nice. I turned up to my first fortnightly signing on session in a suit much to the surprise and amusement of my fellow job seekers.
When I was asked why I was clad in such attire I explained that I was planning on going around some agencies to actively seek work straight after my appointment ended.
This hadn't occurred to them. Ever.
When I worked taking JSA phone calls for a very long six months I had to parry no end of callers who had had their payments delayed because the staff had forgotten to register the date of signing on on the system.
