Hey all,

 

 

I have not been on here for quite a while, however I have got good news, I got a Job and this time I am being honest, this is not a lie this time.

 

 

All last week Monday to yesterday I have been on training with .

 

Our Supervisor trained us up on how to use the scanner and to scan items in the warehouse, and we all know now how to use it and its easy, but the big problem is knowing where every numbers and letters are as its massive warehouse, I got a idea where some are but I just hope it doesn't take me long to figure it out.

 

Anyway, yesterday our supervisor said that he was impressed with us all, he got some good feedback and we all have been taken on, some start today and some start Tuesday, I start Tuesday 25 November at 10.30am - 10.30pm shift, 3 days work and 3 days of.

 

Going to sign of Job Seekers on Monday, its relief now that I got a job, better then being sit in my flat all the time nothing to do.

But just wondering if you could answer these questions for me?

1. Will Job Centre still pay my Jobseekers as I should have signed on yesterday but I was excluded because of this training, will it still go in my bank on Wednesday 26th even though I am signing of?

2. When do I need to inform my council about changes and will I still be able to claim housing benefit for help with my rent if I am working 10.30am - 10.30pm?

3. I recently got accepted for a budgeting loan and I signed my declaration and I posted it back to them on Tuesday 18 November but since I am signing of Jobseekers on Monday will I still get my budgeting loan or no?

4. If I still get my Jobseekers, will Job Centre release the payment early so I can get some dark clothing for work as I haven't got any dark clothing and I can't buy any till I get paid.

If you can help me with these questions then that would be great, and also I apologise about last time I was on here so please accept my apology.

Have a read of section 7 of the link above it deals with financial support in respect of council tax and housing benefits

 

 

It might be worth asking at the Job Centre if they will help you with other short term costs associated with returning to work.

  1. If you didn't sign on as normal yesterday, I suspect they won't make any payments - The JCP will record it as a "failure to attend".
  2. You must inform the council of any change of circumstances within a reasonable time - Usually within a week or three. The DWP will automatically tell the L.A. that your JSA claim has ceased, and the council will withdraw all HB/CT benefits unless you tell them that you are on a low income.
  3. Don't know...
  4. Unlikely (see #1). Pay a visit to your local charity shops and see what they have in the way of hard wearing clothes. Take a look in local discount stores for workwear - For warehouse work, it doesn't need to be fancy or smart. Ask the employer for steel toe cap boots/shoes as this comes under the heading of Personal Protective Equipment.
