I first applied for jobseekers on the 18th July. Had a meeting on the 26th and got the book to write what I have been doing then. I received a letter yesterday saying my claim has been accepted. I just phoned up to find out when the first payment would be going into my account and the woman said next Friday!
Is this right? I've seen people saying that after the first meeting they get money within a few days.

I've had 3 meetings and not even received my first payment. I guess it depends on your area though, JSA is now replaced with some new fancy term now - Universal Credit.
My first payment is 1 month after my claim was accepted, but this payment is monthly
