Looking for work
Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA) is a benefit for people who are unemployed or work a limited number of hours, and are required to be available and actively seeking work.
There are two types of JSA:-
Contribution based JSA, which depends on a client's national insurance contribution record. It may be affected by earnings and occupational or personal pensions, but not by other income or capital.
Income based JSA, which is means-tested and dependent on income and capital.
