    Yes I know that, but does that mean I will get the whole £50 for that week, even though the claim begins on the Wednesday?
    The experience described here would suggest that you'll only get the appropriate fraction, unfortunately. This is just one example, however, so I can't guarantee that this is what will happen for you.

    This. That's why I said you'd probably only get it from the 8th.

    Oh I see, I thought for some reason that they'd just either give a full week's worth or none at all for that week. Thanks anyway!

    Oh, and I was also wondering - are you able to get all of your prescriptions for free whilst claiming Jobseeker's?

    You'll be referring to Income-based JSA I assume, in which case the answer is yes

    One more question - do they ask you to show evidence of what you have been doing to find a job every time you sign on? I only had the little sheet which they gave me where you fill in like a record of what you've done, and the first (and only) time I've been to sign on they never even asked to see that or anything else. Do you ever actually need any evidence?

    At mine they asked me to present printouts of 3 jobs I was interested in (from the machines)...but I've heard some people needed no further evidence just the little sheet/diary.

    You should get a small book with space to write in what you've done. It's not mandatory but it does make the person who's signing you's job easier since they can just copy it down. As long as you've done 3 things per week you're fine then.

    Some people don't ask for it though, so you may not be asked for it each time.
