 Claiming Jobseekers Allowance at Jobcentre

One of the main ways to claim JSA at any Jobcentre is to do so by calling the Jobcentre contact number. We are able to connect you through to their helpline team using our call forwarding number, and this is true of most Jobcentres. In the past, they may have been able to process claims at their address but this generally isn’t the case any more. This is true whether you want to claim ‘new style’ JSA, Universal Credit, or most other benefits.

You can also start a claim for JSA at Jobcentre online through the Gov.UK website – you can do so by following this link, which will provide you with all the details you may require and walk you through the process toward making your claim. Please be aware that in order to use this service, you currently must fit the following criteria:

  • must not have received Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) in the last calendar month
  • must not want to claim Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) from a future date
  • must not want to reclaim JSA after finishing a training course arranged through your Jobcentre
  • must not have an appointee More Information on appointee
  • must not live in Northern Ireland (Northern Ireland customers click here)

You should also:

  • have a National Insurance number
  • have a phone number you can be contacted on
  • complete your own application

Please be aware that if you want to claim Jobseekers Allowance at the Jobcentre Plus, at the time of writing the benefit is being phased out in favour of Universal Credit – and your claim may be moved over to UC at some point, if not from the beginning. This is the case in most Jobcentre locations, not only for those applying for JSA.
