About Job Center Plus Widnes
We help you take care of your financial benefits if you are a person seeking for job in the UK. You can enjoy up to £56.80 every week. However, what determines the amount you receive as Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) is your individual circumstance. Please call our Widnes helpline to discuss how your individual situation may affect your remuneration with an advisor.
Eligibility for JSA
- Applicants must be 18 years or above
- Applicants must be willing and ready to start work
- Applicants must be willing to attend an interview in person
Why You Should Register For Your JSA
You can only get a job seekers allowance based on a contribution basis of six months after which you can receive the entitlement to income based JSA. Those that are above 25 years can receive entitlement that is above £70 while those below age 25 receive about £50. However you can only receive this amount if you have paid enough National Insurance Contributions (NICs) within the past two years. For any further information and clarification on the issues of Job Seekers Allowance, please call Widnes helpline on 0843 506 8863. JSA payments are made into your personal bank account every two weeks.
JSA allowance varies across age groups and status. The figures given here could have changed. Please call us on 0843 506 8863 to confirm. They are as follows;
- Single parent (18 years or over) – £71.70
- Single parent (under 18 years) – £56.80
- Couples (both 18 years or over) – £112.5
- Single (under 25 years) – £56.80
- Single (25 years or over) – £71.70
How to Claim Your JSA
In order to receive your JSA fast, you must put in a rapid claim. Rapid claims can be done online; it is a fast and quick process that will only take a few minutes. Note that you can’t put in a rapid claim if you haven’t been received your JSA within the last six months. Many people get frustrated at this point and give up on the opportunity. You can call our helpline on 0843 506 8863 to discuss your concerns with an advisor.
Another important aspect is your interview. You must attend your interview in person. The interview invite usually comes after two days. The interview contains questions and enquiries about steps that you plan to take to secure employment. This stage is where you prove your willingness to work and be employed. You will also be asked to discuss steps that will secure you a job within the foreseeable future. You must be adequately prepared for this interview. Please call Job Centre Plus Widnes on 0843 506 8863 to speak with an advisor and to discuss your entitlements.
