    Hiya - welcome to the boards!

    I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question, probably the best thing is to contact your Jobcentre and arrange a meeting.

    This info might help you in the meantime - it's the government's site on JSA:
    https://www.gov.uk/jobseekers-allowance/eligibility

    They also have a benefits advisor tool where you can put in your personal details and find out what you're eligible for, so it might be good to try that out:

    Good luck

    Yeah you will. I went to HK for three weeks and signed off, came back, signed on (only for a few days though). Depending on your age you'll be pushed onto one of the Work Programme schemes. Your claim is valid for something like 6 months from when you last applied so it just continues from where you left off.
