I started receiving JSA in July but I had already paid for a holiday so I had to suspend it while I was away for 2 weeks. I was told to rapid reclaim on the website when I returned which I did and I received an email saying I'll hear when my appointment will be within 2 working days. That was Monday last week.

Should I continue waiting or phone up to see what's going on? Also, will I be given JSA from the date of my application or my interview?

Give them a ring, everyone knows the JCP are useless. About 5 years ago my "rapid" reclaim took 5 MONTHS!!! I always used to have to chase them up cos they can't do anythig right.

Is this rapid reclaim a new thing? I thought you were allowed a holiday whilst on JSA

^ Nope, if you go on holiday then you have to sign off, as you won't be available for work.

I'd ring them up everyday as you have to chase everything up with the Jobcentre - if you leave them to their own devices they will either take forever or lose your paperwork and not bother to tell you. And make a complaint.

Also I believe you can go on holiday for up to two weeks in the UK, but you have to let the Jobcentre know in advance and provide contact details.

Did you call them? If not, I'd definitely call them tomorrow - first thing.

I have been asked to make a rapid reclaim online, but I cant find the form. I can only find the new claim form. Do I use that? Please help.
