Hi all, I have a 4 year old and 2 year old, can anybody please tell me when my income support will stop.
Thanks.

At the moment, you can only claim Income Support until your youngest child turns 5. Then if you still don't have a job, you would have to claim JSA. Unless it's become Universal Credit by then I suppose.

Sorry I don't want to sound thick but by the time my two year old hits 5 then it will end and I will end up on jsa unless I get a job by then smile

Yes but most likely it will be UC by then .
