The person concerned has been receiving payments of jobseeker's allowance since June 2013. She is currently in receipt of the correct rate of payment for her age. The next increase she is due to receive will become applicable when she reaches 25 years of age. This is subject to any future budgetary changes that may occur in the rates of jobseeker's allowance.
