The person concerned made an application for jobseekers allowance with effect from 21/2/18. The person concerned subsequently submitted a doctor’s note covering the period 22/2/18 to 22/3/18. During this period the person concerned will not qualify for a jobseekers allowance payment as he does not satisfy the qualifying criteria. The person concerned should contact the local Intreo Centre to clarify his circumstances and progress an application for jobseekers allowance with effect from 23/3/18.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
