The UK Government offers temporary financial support in the form of the ‘Job Seeker’s Allowance’ scheme to those unemployed people residing in England, Scotland or Wales who are currently and actively looking for work.
JSA was introduced in October 1996 by Prime Minister John Major and the Conservative Party to replace the previous system of unemployment benefit, nicknamed ‘the dole’. Just over one million people are currently claiming as of June 2014 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10604117).
There are two types of Job Seeker’s Allowance available. Contribution-based and Income-based. Contribution-based only applies to those claimants who have made sufficient National Insurance contributions. It is not means tested and payments will only be made for a maximum of six months.
Income-based allowance is for those claimants who are on low income and who have not yet made sufficient National Insurance contributions. It is means tested, meaning that your savings and income affects how much your payments will be. Job Seeker’s Allowance is individually assessed through a network of Jobcentres.
