    Customer has had his jsa conts award reduced as he has a private pension over £50 which is fair enough. However when the reduction in his jsa has been calculated the gross pension amount has been used. My thoughts are it should have been based on the net amount. If this is correct then when we calucate the difference for hb we will be using net figure. It just seems a bit strange that we take net and dwp gross???


    You must take the net figures in both cases because the gerneral rule is that only income actually received can be taken into account.

    JSA(C) is not an income related benefit and the rules for the reduction due to the pension in that case of JSA are all tied up with the fact that both the pension and the JSA are taxable benefits
