Daft friend of mine

anthonyberet

A friend of mine started a job early in June. With her usual disregard
for official reading matter, she thought that to get her extended
payment (which for my sins, I told her about), she should continue to
sign on twice more after starting work. The work is only for 20 hours
per week, but is expected to last at least 3 months.

Anyway, now I have enlightened her to the fact that she should have sent
back her ES40 (of whatever it is called these days) and claimed the EP,
and not signed on again after starting work.

What can she do now? She wants to just not go back and sign on next
time, but if she does that she will miss out on the EP and the HB/CTB
run-on, although she has been overpaid 3 weeks of JSA (IB).

What would JC+ staff here advise? Is she likely to get in trouble over
her signing those 2 times when she strictly shouldn't have, if she
explains her misunderstanding to the JC? She does nto respond well to
authority, unfortunately.

Thanks.

One option: She should tell them she was wrongly advised and explain
it. Has she had money she's not entitled to?

She has not had money she is not entitled to. She has had 3 weeks too
much JSA, but no EP yet, which would be 4 weeks at ther same rate, and
the HB/CTB that follow from that. If she does nothing now, the state
would save about 1 week JSA/EP and 2 weeks each of HB and CTB.

She has however signed an untrue declaration, twice.
I think I will recommend she sends her signing book back with actual
dates filled-in and sees what happens. She doesn't actually need to
speak to anyone from JC+ when doing that. She didn't *actually* mean any
fiddle and I think this should be apparent when the claim is terminated.
