    I've been on JSA since the middle of July. However for a birthday since then I got a few hundred pounds into my account as a present, will this count as income? I'm still looking for a job and waiting back on masters courses but I'd rather be on the safe side than have a fraud investigation.

    I realise I've answered my own question sort of but I'm interested to know if someone has been in this situation.

    its a gift for you and is not given on a regular basis (well yearly) but not as often as the monthly income they look for before giving out jsa

    Unless you have savings of more than £6000 and the money has been added to them, you should be fine:
