    Does anyone have any experience of claiming JSA/ income support in the summer months? I have been sucsessful but I also want it backdating? My reason is that I am on a zero hours contract and expected more work , just unsure if this is acceptable? TIA

    You'd have yo have a good reason for them to backdate it.

    Yea I read about this. Its because I work on a zero hours contract in the the NHS and did not get as many shifts as expected , paid less than I expected too. This is why I have had to have a top up of my wages. I did think that would be enough to be honest but I am not so sure.
