Jobseekers – have you confirmed your ongoing entitlement?

Tuesday, 27 October 2020

People receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance and those who are registered for National Insurance Credits on account of unemployment are reminded to respond to a recent letter sent to them.

Letters were issued earlier this month and a further reminder will be sent this week to those who have not yet responded.

Recipients should complete the questions on the back of the letter to confirm they remain entitled to Jobseeker’s Allowance and/or National Insurance credits and whether or not they have had any changes that may affect their claim.

Where no response to this letter has been received within seven days of the reminder, The Treasury will have no option but to suspend claims and payments until contact is made to confirm entitlement.

Any jobseekers who have not received a letter should contact the Jobseekers Allowance team on +44 1624 685126 or by email
