UK question: What documents are needed when claiming unemployment benefits?

Post by Guest »

My friend has lost her job and is worried that she would be accused of benefit fraud because she just split up with a boyfriend who earns quite well and their finances still appear to be joint: the mortgage, joint bank account, etc.

If they live together, share bills etc then they need to be on a joint claim.

If she's moved out, and nothing shared then she can make a single claim.

If they've split up then why would she want to carry on using a joint bank account?

Own bank account, barcleys were really good as I walked out of a DA relationship and they set up a basic single account.

Get your name taken off all joint bills so you are not liable for them.

We had a joint mortgage, he bought me out they were aware of this.

She won't be able to claim if she doesn't have her own bank account

Well she needs her own bank account in her own name not joint and everything else needs to be in her own name not joint
