In UKBA document under
Public funds there are two types of JSA
Income-based jobseeker’s allowance this is public funds
contribution based jobseeker’s allowance is not mentioned in public funds
can i claim contribution based
Please check Whether you get contribution-based Jobseeker's Allowance will depend on your national insurance contributions. If you have been working and paying national insurance contributions within the last couple of years, you may qualify.iqkhanuk wrote:Hi I am looking to claim the JSA contribution based can any one confirm this and also is this type of JSA is there any kind of test / criteria to qualify.
