Job Start Payment

27th April 2021

Are you starting a new job this week?

If you're aged 16 to 24 and have been out of work and getting a qualifying benefit for 6 months, you may be eligible for Job Start Payment!

The payment can help towards the costs of starting a new job, such as new clothes or transport, and is £252.50 (or £404 if you are the main carer of a child). If you are a care-leaver aged 16 to 25, you may be eligible if you were getting certain benefits at the time you were offered the job.
