    I was just about to post a similar thread. I finish university on the 15th July (next Fri), what's the earliest I can claim?

    Thanks!

    When you are no longer officially a student - July 15th.

    I've had virtually no problem claiming. Had a slight problem this time thanks to someone deciding I must sign on the day after I had my interview thing.

    Hey there,

    Thanks for posting.

    I've not had any personal experiences with JSA. But from what I hear from others, it seems as though it really does depend which office you go to and who serves you. However, I did find many threads on the MoneySavingExpert.com website (link) which I thought might be useful for you.

    Hope it all works out for you. :)

    It can take a while if they need bank statements, etc.
