You can complete your claim online and get they will then give you an appointment to go in to the benefits office to finalise it. Saves a lot of hassle.

You'll also need a copy of your bank statement and any savings account etc. 15mins and it will be all over. It will prob be the 1hr wait in the sitting area that will hack you off though....

went through this myself a couple of years ago.

contact your council for a council tax benefit form and they will post one to you (JSA claim has to be approved before they grant it but will be backdated).

See the council for housing benefit too.

If you are married or living with a partner who works then forget about any extra benefits like council tax benefit or help with rent, oh and they stop paying your job seekers allowance after 6 months.

Has he declared that he is living with a working partner? you still get jobseekers after 6 months but all they do is pay the national insurance contributions.
