More About The Organisation
Jobcentre Plus is a business, within the Department for Work and Pensions. It is designed to help meet the Government\'s aim of promoting work as the best form of welfare, while providing appropriate help and support for those without jobs and ensuring the security of the benefits system.
We provide a service to employers by advertising job vacancies.
We provide a service to all unemployed people of working age by ensuring there is work for those who can and support for those who cannot.

How do people access your service?
To make a NEW claim call 0800 0 55 66 88 - Calls are free from a landline. Charges may apply when calling from a mobile phone, but we will arrange to call you back. Lines are open from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday
The call will take about 40 minutes. You will be speaking to an operator who will guide you through making a new claim or renewing details of a claim which has recently closed. During the call you will be asked to provide information including:
your National Insurance number;
details of your rent or mortgage;
details of your past or present employment; and
details of other income or savings.
Please make sure that you have this information handy when you call. The operator will tell you what will happen next with your claim. For example, they may make you an appointment to see an adviser at your nearest Jobcentre Plus office to help with your search for work. They can also tell you who to contact if you have a question about your benefit.
We can only accept calls from the person who is making the claim, unless you have made previous arrangements with us for someone to act on your behalf.
To get advice about your claim for benefit telephone the Benefit Advice Line on 0117 958 9400.
