I left my Job on the 07/08/2015 and claimed JSA along with housing benefit and council tax support. I received a letter two days ago from the benefits office saying that as I left my job voluntarily they would not be paying me any money until November. I then decided to sign off JSA as I am starting a new job in three weeks time anyway. I visited the council offices to inform them that I still needed to claim housing/council tax benefit as I was/am not working. My wages were paid in two weeks after I finished work. They called this ' residual income' and said that as I had income I would have to pay rent. I have not earnt any money since the day I finished work. I was paid afterwards for the work that I did up until and including the 7th august. So surely I have no income. I never even received any payment from JSA. Should I be entitled to housing and council tax benefit?

Thank you.
