Are young adults who move back in with their parents after university entitled to JSA or similar if they're unemployed and looking for work?

I can't get entitledto to work for this case, though I'm probably being very dense.

It's decades since I applied for JSA, and I have no idea how the system works now. I am, as you will have guessed, one of the parents.

Anyone over 18 and is looking for work can claim JSA it dosnt matter who they live with or
Household income. It's around £54 week for under 25s. They will have to jump through lots of hoops and have C V ready now before can claim. They need to make appointment at the job centre.

I mean it does matter if
You are living with a partner after 6m it's means tested but living with parents isn't counted in this way
