    Why would you not meet the other criteria?

    - worked as an employee
    - paid Class 1 National Insurance contributions, usually in the last 2 to 3 years (National Insurance credits can also count)
    - be 18 or over (there are some exceptions if you’re 16 or 17 - contact Jobcentre Plus for advice)
    - be under the State Pension age
    - not be in full-time education
    - be available for work
    - not be working at the moment, or be working less than 16 hours per week on average
    - not have an illness or disability which stops you from working
    - live in England, Scotland or Wales
    - have the right to work in the UK

          Yeah, I have seen you comment this before, you seem to have a bee in your bonnet about it
          HMRC considers me one and is happy to take my tax & NI so I would be happy to take the benefits it's paid for
