Hi, does anyone know if you are signing on for over 6 months on either JA or JB, if you can then ask for the payment to be lodged directly into your bank account. I know the rules changed as of June 08, and all new claims are in cash at the post office, but it seems like there is conflicting info/views on whether this is for 6 months only or the entire time you are on JA/JB.
For example if you lost your job in Jan 09, after collecting your JA/JB payment weekly for 6 months at the post office, could you transfer to an electronic bank payment? How does this work?
Any help, much appreciated
