london, I`m not too sure on this so will wait on other members suggestions. Usually, they will say tell them when you are starting a new job, but as we know, that can mean JSA being stopped prematurely. I`ve heard of this happening when someone reports a change of circumstance, but I`ve also heard that JSA will pay you up to X date until your new job starts. But a month is a long time to wait, especially when you need expenses up front. If it was me, I would wait until I started the job to make sure it was (a) right for me and (b) the job was indeed permanent. Unless someone can assure you on this that JSA would be paid right up until the starting date of your son`s job, it`s a tricky one. All I can suggest is, if he has a starting date for this job and his JSA was to be paid in a few days BEFORE this date, he should wait until that JSA payment is made and THEN report his change of circumstance and not before. If he has that JSA payment in his account, at least it`s better than not having the full amount.

If JSA are then notified after this payment is paid, they might even pay your son the few days between his last payment and his job starting date. But they would have to clarify that obviously. So, look at the day/date he is due to start this job and look at when his next JSA payment is due in his account. If he begins the job before the JSA payment is due by say a few days, I wouldn`t worry about that as they may just ask for the overpayment, which wouldn`t be a lot anyway, although your son needs to decide this for himself.

Which can mean no job at the end of the three months unless they keep your son on. Hopefully the job will become permanent but if it doesn`t, he can make a rapid reclaim for JSA if the job ends within six months. Otherwise he may be asked to claim Universal Credit as most claimants are now finding is happening.

I would also wait until your son has a written contract from that 'agency' as some have a nasty habit of not sending one at all you can then delay telling joke club about start dates and get maximum UC/JSA award.

Heard of some horror stories where someone phones UC unhelpful line telling them they start work on x date and that date being 2 weeks away jsa stopped there and then.I am sure now things are different though :whistle: :silly: ;)
