I have lost my jobYou may need to claim benefits much as you would if you lost your job in “normal” circumstances. However, the government has just introduced a “job retention scheme” to help prevent people losing their jobs as a result of Coronavirus.

If you have already lost your job due to Coronavirus, there might be some scope to “reverse” the redundancy and utilise the job retention scheme instead (you may be eligible if you lost your job any time from 28th February). You should contact your former employer about this in the first instance. If you need help understanding what benefits you may be entitled to, call our Financial Inclusion team on 0208 768 7925 or email them at Jherbert@hexagon.org.uk . If you want help finding a new job, talk to our Employment team on 0208 768 7915. Although responses may be a little slower than usual due to the current situation, we continue to be available to help with these issues.
