All benefits, pensions and allowances are usually paid into your bank, building society or credit union account .
If your income-based JSA claim is ending because you’re making a new claim for Universal Credit, you’ll automatically continue to get the amount of JSA you currently receive, as long as you’re still eligible. You’ll normally get this for 2 weeks, starting from the date of your new claim.
The Department for Work and Pensions ( DWP ) will write to you telling you how this works.
You do not need to pay this money back, and it will not affect the amount of Universal Credit you get.
