A question on benefits...

#1
Say I leave the Armed Forces with a £80k pay out and £6.5k pension.

If you don't get a job straight away... can I claim anything?

To claim benefits, you need to be working less than 16 hours a week (which you would be) and have less than 16k savings (which i suspect you'll have more than)

I don't think you can claim benefits if you've got more than £6k to your name. Whet will be along in a moment to offer his services as a consultant.

You don't want to go to the dole office. You'll feel naked without a Pit Bull.

Job seekers allowance contributions based.

Bout £65.45 per wk for 182 days. It changes next week by a matter of a couple of quid.

You will be entitled to it because its not means tested like JSA income based which is what AM is describing above. Basically you get you NI contributions back for six months on conts based JSA.

No consultant here and I'm no expert, but I'm aware of this calculator which worked pretty well for me.

If you are in possession of a passport from romania, somalia or the outer fringes of the nile delta, then you will be quids in mate, as it stands you are probably entitled to an interview with an 18year old yoof, who will spend hours going through bullshit paperwork, and then register you as a malingering anti government activist , on the grounds that you failed to take the employment offered as a trainee job centre yoof on minimum wage. You will be entitled i believe to have your NI contributions paid if unemployed, don't quote me though, having luckily never been unemployed, unemployable by anyone else yes!!!

Do what millions of immigrants do, bank it abroad.
On a contributions based benefits it doesn't work. They'll know you've been made redundant so will want to know where its gone and ask you to provide evidence. Besides, its still capital available to you so still wouldn't be able to claim.

You will get nothing, as you have worked and accumulated money. If however, you had pissed it all up in the spoons or put it on a horse, you could easily pick up a cheque for JSA. I would imagine that you must owe about 78k to a close friend, who will then be able to supply you with the aper trail showing it's gone into their bank account.

No, if you have enough money (and 80k would certainly be considered enough) plus a regular income then you are not in need of help. Cheeky ****, it's bad enough paying through the nose in taxes for workshy chavs let alone having to do so for some chancer with 80 ******* grand at their disposal.

I've paid in to it long enough.

Does any of this change if I am in full time education?
Yep. Your not actively seeking full-time employment so no Job Seekers Allowance.

True, but the £80k will be spent on a new house... if no help would be forthcoming (should I not get a job) then I'll have to hold some back and store it somewhere.

And they take into account your pension - so NO but you will get your NI contributions paid so you have to sign on. Fact not fiction or based on tinternet hearsay.

We are called the compliance team now.

I like the pictures on your Facebook of your civil partnership blessing. You said you lived alone?

Hm, not looking brilliant. May have to find ANY sort of employment to tide me over whilst I finish off my final part of PGCE.
