I have been a single parent for 3 yrs now and recently divorced I claim tax credits and also get child benefit & child maintenance of kids dad and have recently been struggling. Can I claim JSA aswell as the above benefits as I am looking to returning back to work ?
Thank you for your post on our forum. In most cases making a new claim for a benefit would mean claiming universal credit which would end your child tax credit claim.
