Petition Action

Increase ALL unemployed benefits by an extra £20 a week due to Covid-19.

Petition Details

We want the Government to Urgently pay the £20 COVID-19 increase to ALL Unemployed People receiving state unemployment benefits like JSA. NOT just those on Universal Credit.

Please Pay Immediately, with backpay of the £20 increase, and compensation for Hardship endured due to Government Wrongs.

Additional Information

Through ZERO Fault of their own, many Unemployed CLAIMANTS are receiving 'BAD Differences' in government financial assistance' during COVID-19. Currently Only Universal Credit claimants get the extra £20 week.

There is significant hardship, and Grave Mental Illness issues occurring now or in the future.

IT’S HARD TO BUDGET Unemployment Benefit, & 'Keeping COVID Safe', such as by keeping the windows open for ventilation in cold weather leads to extra costs.
