    hi-ya Dave0876 not sure if i can help but if i am incorrect im sure someone will get it right.
    I recently made a claim for income support i had to go down to the job centre etc i was told it could take up to two weeks anyway i couldnt wait that long so i rang up for a crisis loan they call you back by 2pm if you call early, anyway they told my i couldnt get a crisis loan if you are entitled to a benefit but you can request an intrim payment, anyway cut along story short the troll on the "help" ha-ha desk wouldnt put me through to income support even though the guy on the crisis loan dept had sorted it for me so in the end(next day) i had to have a crisis loan, imagine the day after i get a giro from income support telling me they have sorted out my claim! I think if you apply for a crisis loan it helps to get your JA claim sorted quicker. sorry for waffling on mate hope it helps

    After signing the money should be in your bank 3 WORKING days later.

    This does include new claims

    i deal with these ppl due to my work everyday. I am not DWP staff but i should be due to the amount of times i speak to them per day due to clients.

    This is the normal experiances but it should not take 2 weeks from date of claim to first money as you are nott allowed to be left without money for more than 2 weeks and if they do u can make a formal complaint and gain some type of compensation.

    most employees dont get trained properly and most of them could not tell you anything at all regarding the way things happen.
