I'm wondering if anyone can help. I was made redundent last year but was pregnant at the time so claimed contribution based jsa whilst I looked for work. I didn't find anything before having baby and claimed full 6 months entitlement.
Baby is now 6 months and I need to start looking for work, but I've been suffering with pnd and anxiety, and am not well enough to work. We're really struggling financially, my dh earns a good wage so not entitled to any support but with 3 children and a massive mortgage we are sinking deeper into debt.
Gp wants to sign me off and my friend mentioned contribution based ESA but I'm not sure if I can claim that as used all jsa entitlement and not worked since. Does anyone know?
