Being made redundant at end of Jan, am i entitled to anything?

I have already applied fo 5 jobs so fingers crossed. But in the meantime i'm worrying about money so will i be entitled to anything. My partner earns £1300 per month and we do not get any tax credits as they said due to my job change in 2008 we already had our credits for the year (so they don't overpay us i guess)

If you only began your job last year you aren't entitled to any redundancy money. You can sign on for jobseekers allowance immediately though.

It depends on how long you have been employed by your current employer. If it is over 2 years then you would be entitled to redundancy. This applies to British law only.

if you get more than £6,000 you can`t claim anything, so make sure you pay some bills and get your bank balance under this amount then you can claim
