Re: Mortgage payments on JSA-qualifying periods
The mortgage section is a specialist area so the number you call which is a contact centre are unable to give advice as the majority have no benefit knowledge.
I found this section through browsing a link posted on a similar thread :o
Qualifying period for housing costs already served
23716 Most eligible housing costs have a QP (see DMG 23650 et seq). Such a QP may have to be served again following a break in entitlement to JSA(IB), ESA(IR) or IS. But there is a linking rule for cases where the QP has already been served when entitlement to JSA(IB), ESA(IR) or IS ends.

had income that exceeds the applicable amount. For IS this includes includes cases where the income was equal to the applicable amount.
