    Currently going through separation where I can not go back.

    I am currently employed however can not make ends mean due to child care rent food etc on my own.

    If i were to give up work due to my change in situation sign on and asking for housing, would they say no due to me giving up my job?

    Trying to understand if you can only seek help via benefits if you have been sacked.

    Hi Gsmith,

    Thank you for posting on the forum. The rules for giving up work voluntarily and claiming benefits can be complex and we would advise to get some specialist advice before making the decision. You can call our free helpline and speak to one of our advisers about your situation. https://www.gingerbread.org.uk/what-we-do/contact-us/helpline/

    Best wishes

    Thank you for replying.

    I don’t have mortgage or property my son is 18months and I dont have any savings.

    When you say sanctioned to resign do you mean it would be okay to resign then sign on?

    I think I am planning to remain in work. Currently working 39 hrs and earning 1900 a month.

    I’ve done different calculators. But if I were to get 500 UC onto of my wage I would be absolutely fine. Is that what you mean?

     

    Working full time and 1.5 year old are there any other benefits I would be entitled too? Where would I sign up to these.

     

    Great help thank you x
