Backdating job seekers allowance
You should give as much information as you can for the whole of the time you want your benefit backdated.If you have more than one reason for not claiming sooner, you must tell us about all those reasons.Jobseeker's Allowance is a benefit for people who are not in full time employment (work less than 16 hours per week), are capable of working and are looking for work.If your working pattern varies or you need help to calculate how many hours you work, see our Working hours guide.Here are some examples of 'good cause' that we would consider to backdate your claim: These are not the only reasons we will treat as being a good cause for backdating a claim.Each application will be looked at on its own merit.However, a number of sections of the Internal Revenue Code—in particular, sections 162(m), 162(m)(5), 162(m)(6), and 280(g)—limit the deductibility of executive compensation.
In contrast to Section 162(m), sections 162(m)(5) and 162(m)(6) are more recent and narrowly targeted; they apply, respectively, to Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) participants and health insurers.If we can backdate your claim, the most we can go back is 3 months before you made your claim.From 1st April we may be able to backdate your Housing Benefit for up to 1 month, but you MUST have a good reason for not having claimed sooner. If you are aged 16/17 - see our section for Young People (aged 16/17) for information about claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance as a young person.The topic of executive compensation has long been of interest to academics, the popular press, and politicians.
This measure will start on 1 January 2017 and is ongoing.
