How To Sign Off Job Seekers Allowance
Signing Off From Jobseekers Allowance
Signing off from jobseekers allowance is just as simple as signing on as all you have to essentially do is to contact the jobcentre with details of your job that you have got and that's it, but there are a few things that you must sort out before you do sign off jobseekers allowance, and these will help ease the transition for unemployment to work.
When I signed off I just went in with my signing on book and I had to fill out the back of it and sign it, but also there was a small bonus of a back to work grant of £200 which was nice and a run on of housing benefit and council tax benefit for at least 4 weeks after starting work, which helped.
The thing is to find out what you are entitled to on the day of signing off, because anytime after this day you'll have no chance of claiming anything, so make sure you do it all on this day and if you need to I would recommend getting a final tax credit calculation just to make sure you will be better off in the job that are undertaking.
You could however be signing off for some other reason, such as switching benefits, so make sure that everything will run smoothly by having everything you need to make that new claim, national insurance number, full name and date of birth and address and also any other piece of information that will speed up your claim, such as doctors letters or p45's.
Benefits exist to help you out in a time of need so try to claim them when you can and do the right thing when signing off, to maximize the support transition from JSA - Jobseekers Allowance or to another benefit like Incapacity or sick benefit.
