I have applied for Job Seekers Allowance. They have took that I applied for 'contributional JSA', now they say I havent paid enough national insurance to qualify for it. I am only 19 and have been in school, got my GCSE's and Alevels, and started uni. I left uni and started to look for a job at the worst time possible!! How could i have had a full time job in the middle of all that? I could only manage 3 part time jobs. I live with my boyfriend, and the take that as a 'civil partnership' ???? One woman said she thinks I qualify for it and anither said I won't. Im SO confused!!! And angry! I'ts not like I'm not looking for work (as many don't when they are on it, the job centre woman told me...) I apply for at least 4 jobs every day, and get nowhere!! =/ Any ideas on anything else I can apply for? It's all getting too much for my boyfriend to pay for everything HELP!!!!
