    Default Working while claiming JSA?

    Just wondering what happens if while claiming JSA you happen to do a few days work during that period, anyone any experience of it?

    Is it best just to say nothing while signing, or be upfront and tell them? And if you do tell them do you lose x days JSA, or is it a typical civil service performance of having to fill out forms which then have to go off for a decision etc etc...

    By not declaring any income you receive whilst on JSA is in effect fraud. If I were you, I would declare it as soon as you are aware that you are taking on new work, even if it is cash in hand.
    If your company is the best place to work in, for a mere 500 p/d, you can advertise here.

    If it's a regular thing then 'fess up.

    If it is a real one off then, although you shouldn't, keep your gob shut. Don't make them think, they only get it wrong and you'll have more grief that you can live with.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Yeah if it comes up, it's a one off. 4 days Fri-Mon. Not wanting to commit fraud but I really can imagine my honesty would cause all sorts of probs, and was just wondering if anyone had 'fessed up and wished they hadnt or if it's an easy process which they come across all the time.

    Cheers...

    Rollout or desktop support. What work there is has seen drops in rates or wanting SC for some reason (do they think they get a better calibre I wonder??) but I've a possibility of 4 days work over next weekend.

    That'll also cause them to blow a gasket if I mention weekend work!!

    Wish I could help.

    As for the SC thing - I suppose the only difference would be someone ready
    to go straight away as oppose to a few weeks to get clearance.

    They have forms that allow you to declare any income, seem to recall you get given them.
