Can you take Job Seekers Allowance if you have taken voluntary redundancy with a pension?Watch this post
Hi, I'm 60 and have just taken voluntary redundancy after 35 years (there was no longer a position for me ) I have come away with a very good pension and £30k in my current account, a friend told me I might be entitled to job seekers allowance, I went on the Gov website to see if I could claim it but they ask a lot of questions about my finances savings pensions etc, I was just wondering if the forum thinks I should go ahead and tell them everything or play my cards closer to my chest? - exactly how much personal info about my finances should I give?
can anything I tell them now about my savings and pensions come back to haunt me in the future when I hit state pension age?
