Job Start Payment is a new benefit to help you with the costs of starting a new job.
You can apply for Job Start Payment if you're a young person who's been out of work and are on certain benefits. You also need to meet the other requirements explained in the 'who can apply' section.
You can get a one-off payment of £250, or the higher rate of £400 if you're the main carer of any children.
