You may be eligible for different benefits depending on your circumstances.
These benefits can be paid if your disability means that you have care needs or mobility difficulties regardless of whether you are in work or in education and regardless of how much money you have or who you live with.

Benefits for people that are unemployed. Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) is a benefit for people who are able to work and can prove that they are actively looking for work.
