Good Work

Two months in to a three-month contract, I came home yesterday to four letters from the Department for Work & Pensions, in identical scary brown envelopes:
  • One telling me my Jobseeker's Allowance had been paid
  • One telling me my Jobseeker's Allowance was being stopped as I was working
  • One telling me I wasn't eligible for a Job Grant (which I don't recall asking for) and
  • One containing a P45.

The good news is that my JSA for the period around Christmas and New Year when I wasn't working had been paid into my bank account. Lucky I didn't need it desperately back in January, eh?

NB I am very glad the system is in place, but I feel it could be more efficient.
