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.
