    Hmm- it's an unusual one- I'd actually send someone into the office to explain the situation with you doctor's phone number on it if they want to clarify

    If you can't sign or collect your money, you are viewed as being unavailable for work, so you will need to get a social welfare cert from your doctor and send it into your local office. This will close your Jobseeker's claim and open an Illness Benefit claim unfortunately - you are best to ring them to talk to them about it.
