Ok so I have been on jsa what we split 50-50 £114.85 (every 2 weeks) for a while now and last month I landed a part time job of 12hours a week started 04/03/2019 and the payday is the 9th of every month(about 440) so next pay 09/04/19 and I also due to get my full benefit of jsa on 10/04/2019 (jsa is paid in arrears) (last jsa payment was 27/03/19; if I was not working I would due another payment on the 24/04

My wife thinks I am scamming her a I believe she will be due 3 3x114.85 to cover from 27/03-10-04 and I believe that's incorrect as it's 2x114.85 as 114.85 will cover from 27/03 - 10/04 and then another 114.85 to cover 10/04-24-04 and in 2 weeks time I will get paid again just wages

Please can some one help me

Surely your wife will just be due whatever half of the payment is, as she always is? Then next time the money will be hers, as you've got a job now.

You have made a joint claim for JSA. That means that you are jointly entitled to the money. The cash isn't yours - it is for both you and your wife.

How you choose to distribute it within your relationship is entirely up to you both.

I appreciate that all relationships are different, but from a budgeting perspective it would make sense for household bills and essential costs to be paid, and then for you to share whatever's left for individual spends. That's how joint claims are designed; you both share in the benefits and costs of running a household.
