Rapid reclaim for job seekers allowence
You can make a Rapid Reclaim if you have had Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA) in the last 26 weeks. Reclaims can be made online here.
To get JSA you usually have to:
- be 18 and above (but below State Pension age)
- be available for work
- meet the other rules for eligibility
Contact Jobcentre Plus if you cannot apply online:
- Telephone: 08000556688
- Textphone: 08000234888
- Welsh language line: 08000121888
- Lines are open Monday to Friday 8am-6pm
To complete your claim you will still have to attend an interview at your local Jobcentre or you won't get any JSA. If you apply online, you will receive a text or phone call within 2 working days to arrange this.
