    OP - out of interest, have you signed on to claim JSA?

    3 months = £950 you've lost out on already if not.

    Don't worry NLUK can afford it out of his taxes....

    I'm in digital, creative services. London based.

    Re JSA - my understanding is that if I'm LTD and have savings of over £16k I am not eligible?
