Hello all, I got made redundant on 24th sep and my last pay was 25th sep, I applied for UC whilst I job hunt and also JSA which I am receiving. Because the dates in which my UC is calculated, I am not eligible for any until 1st Dec. But will not have had any income through Oct and Nov. Is there anything I can do appeal this? 9.5weeks without an income is a long time and my SEP pay won’t last until 1st December.
Sorry to hear about the job. UC will backdate your payment from the 25th. I would suggest to apply for an advance – the portal is straightforward and money was paid into my account in 4/5 days. I hope that helps.
