Tell the jobcentre that you are being signed as sick and ask them what
you should do now. If you are about to sign on anyway at the jobcentre
then tell them when you go for that, or else give them a ring and let
them know.

(I'm assuming you were signing on for JSA before you went sick).

Have you claimed Incapacity Benefit yet?

http://www.dwp.gov.uk/lifeevent/benefits/incapacity_benefit.asp

(You can download and print off the claim form from that link, then fill
it in and send it off with your doctor's notes).

You will probably be able to get Incapacity Benefit instead of JSA
whilst you aren't fit to work - it's roughly the same amount for each of
the benefits, but not quite.

If you claim incapacity benefit, you will then also be able to claim
income support
