  1. Husband was made redundant in Dec 2012. He is now claiming IbJSA. I started my own business in July 2012, part time aprox 10 hours a week. when my Husband started claiming JSA, they asked how much I earned a week. I said £40...BUT now I have just realised I didn't take into account all my business expenses (was gunna get an accountant to work it out at end of year, as a rough guide its £1,900 a year for rates, laundry, insurance, cleaning, phone, stationary etc etc) To work out the £40 a week I worked out my takings and purchases of stock. So we've been loosing out on money - I asked them about this but they just said to fill out a B7 form each week now - which seems unfair and is of NO help! Also ive been trying to call them to tell them we are now claiming DLA (since January) for one of our children (we have 2) and also that I will be claiming CA, but job centre benefit delivery never answer the phone!! my Husband is now setting up his own business (given up looking for employment!) Job Centre have been no help what so ever!! Advise appreciated please
  2. Thanks for reading and for help! I am currently out of work and claiming JSA but on Saturday received a letter saying "We cannot pay you because you have not paid, or been credited with, enough Class 1 National Insurance Contributions". They have used the tax year 2005/2006 to work this out, when I was out of work and not claiming any benefits, hence the NI shortage. Since then I have phoned JC+ and been adviced to fill out a JSA3 and claim income based JSA. I have done this and returned the form to my job centre today. My situation is that I am single, living with parents and have £1500 in savings from my last job, and this is what ive put on the form. My question is,is this the correct procedureand will this qualify me for IB JSA? Is there likely to be any problems here or this a straightforward claim? Also, how long does this process usually take? I am starting a temporary job in 2 weeks time (only for one month) after which ill have to sign back on. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated as im worried about this!
