PIP & JSA

My daughter-in-law applied for JSA at the beginning of November. They messed up and failed to pay her. When she finally signed on this week, she received just a few pounds and was told that, as she had PIP to live on (no mobility component) so that they didn't have to worry about paying her until the end of the month. She has bills outstanding and needs to pay them now as well as buy some stuff to help with her disability. Any thoughts?

      Thanks nadnad but money is tight for them. We have tried calling the cab but can't get through (not on the national number yet). It's frustrating because they have taken so long to deal with this. If you were 5 minutes late signing in then you lose a month's income!

    You do have to remember that there are many claimants that receive no income at all whilst waiting the many weeks before payments start to roll in.

    Your DIL would be considered lucky by the DWP in that she has some regular income.
