Hi Jubilee or anyone else who can help. I have been told that I cannot claim contributory JSA as I have not paid enough NINO for tax year ending 5/4/09. I earned circa £9k and paid tax and got a tax refund. I have checked wageslips and it looks like I only paid £315 national insurance. Does this sound like I have not paid enough National Insurance? What can I do to about this. I have tried to ring Job Centre plus but keep getting cut off as all the customer service people are busy. Any help would be appreciated.. Can't believe I have had to go and sign on and it was a waste of time.
