    Im just looking for information on behalf of a friend.(age 27)

    Basically she has given in her notice at work and will be moving home to her parents house.(Its a long story)

    One parent is on illness benefit and the other is on JA.

    Where is her first port of call regarding social welfare?
    Also can she get any help from her CWO?

    Thanks.

    Depending on how many contributions she has paid she may be eligible for jobseekers benefit. A disqualification period of up to 9 weeks may apply.

    Shes been in the same job for over 4 years.

    Ya I was thinking the 9 week rule might apply but does she go and make a claim straight away?

    Also do you think the CWO will give her a hand?
    Shes literally going home with her clothes..as I said its a long story,so she hasnt any funds to fall back on.

    Well that's the rule. You're meant to make a claim on day 1 of being unemployed.

    Eh, well that's at the discretion of the CWO. Some of them seem to play santa claus, others aren't so generous.
