    I've found myself in the position of needing to claim JSA until I begin my course in September.

    I was claiming at a London branch but due to personal reasons moved to Bristol and transferred my claim there.

    Somewhere along the line a form wasn't sent to/received at head office from the branch and I haven't received any of my entitlement since June 11th even though I have been signing on.

    I've been told I can sort this out by going into the branch and filling the form in again and that should be the end of the matter. I sign on tomorrow and shall fill the form in while I'm there.

    Inevitably, this has messed things up for me, I've had to cancel a regular small transfer to a savings account I'd set up, and spend money calling the bank and the various jobcentre helplines in order to deal with the situation, not to mention the stress.

    My question is; am I entitled to any interest or any kind of extra money for late payment? Also, could I get my entitlement on the spot tomorrow? I may be facing some hefty overdraft charges if I have to wait any longer for this.

    you will be backpaid whatever you have missed out on since originally signing in London. make sure to tell them about any payments you didnt get though....

    no you cannot get payment on the spot, youll have to wait unfortunately.
