J.S.A. is a taxable benefit to support people who are actively looking for work. To get Jobseeker's Allowance you must be either unemployed or working fewer than 16 hours a week.
Universal Credit is a new benefit gradually being introduced nationally. If you're receiving benefits, you won't need to contact them as it will eventually replace the existing benefits:
