Overview of Job Center Kidsgrove
Job Centre Kidsgrove handles job seeker’s allowance, which is a financial benefit given to individuals who are yet to get employment. The allowance can be up to £56.80 each week. The amount each person receives may be affected by the type of Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) you’re qualified to receive, as well as other individual circumstances. For help on your eligibility status, call the Job Center Kidsgrove Helpline on 0843 506 8863 to speak to an advisor.
However, you must be at least 18 years of age and be ready to start work before applying for JSA. In addition, you’ll have to attend an interview after your application to complete the application process.
Here’s what you may receive when you’ve been approved:
Job Seeker’s Allowance is made available only on a 6 months contribution basis. When this period has elapsed, then you may be qualified to receive an income based Job Seeker’s Allowance. If you’re 16-24 or 25 years of age, you may be entitled to receive up £56.80 and £71.70 respectively. But you can only receive such amount if you’ve paid enough National Insurance Contributions (NIC’s) in the last 2 years. If you’re on a low income and have not been able to pay sufficient NIC’s in the past 2 years, you may still be able to receive your JSA. Call the Job Center Number Kidsgrove on 0843 506 8863 for clarifications on any of the above.
Below are a few examples of what you could receive depending on your status:
- Under 25 (single) – £56.80
- 25 or over (single) – £71.70
- 18 or over (couples) – £112.55
- 18 or over (lone parent) – £71.70
- Under 18 (lone parent) – £56.80
You will want to call the Job Center Kidsgrove Helpline on 0843 506 8863 to confirm these figures as they may have changed.
If you’re already receiving or eligible for Child Benefits or Child Tax Credit, Job Seeker’s Allowance does not affect that in any way whatsoever.
How to claim
Rapid claim is the quickest way to receive funding, but only if you’ve received JSA in the past 6 months. This can be done online and it doesn’t take more than 10 min. Call the JSA Kidsgrove Helpline today to discuss about your claim.
After applying for JSA, you’ll receive a phone call within 2 days about your interview date. This interview is important, as you’ll not receive your JSA allowance if you fail to attend the interview. For more information about Job Seeker’s Allowance and whether you’re entitled to make a claim, call 0843 506 8863 now to speak to an advisor.
