New Deal ( UK Benefits )?

Hi – can someone adive me how much a person aged over 25 years- can expect to receive as a part of the New Deal Programme. I have been told that it is approximately £85.00 per week but feel that this is way too high.

Thank you

  1. The Oracle says:

    You go onto New Deal if you are aged over 25 when you have either been claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance for a continuous period of 18 months, or for 18 months out of the last 21 (546 days from the last 637).

    For people aged 18-24, they enter New Deal after 6 months.

    The rate of benefit stays the same at first. There are 3 stages to New Deal:

    Stage 1: Gateway. A period of up to 4 months where you will look for work, supported and monitored by your New Deal Personal Adviser.

    Stage 2: Intensive Activity Period.. If you don’t find a job during Gateway, you move onto this stage. It takes the form of work experience placements,, where you do 30 hours work a week to gain experience and possibly learn new skills. During this time you don’t sign on, and receive a training allowance.

    Stage 3: Follow-through. If you still haven’t found a job, you return to signing on, and see your New Deal Personal Adviser for another 6 to 13 weeks.

    You get extra money when you ar eon your work experience placement. You get an extra £15.38 a week, on top of the £60.50 that is your normal JSA entitlement.

    So your benefit rate during that time will be £75.88
