income based JSA affects ILR?

Post by Gears123 » Tue Sep 09, 2008 2:58 pm

I'm a British citizen, my wife is not (she is a on 2 year FLR(M) visa). I'm not currently employed and thinking about applying for income-based JSA. We have a child. She's not working right now but will be doing some part time work soon. If I apply for income-based JSA will this affect my wife's next visa application (ILR)? If not then I assume I only put my name on the JSA claim? Do they need any info about her? Thanks for any help.. :)

Yes just claim JSA in your name.The only thing you can have in joint name is tax credits all other benefits in your name only.It will not effect her status.
