Jobseeker's Allowance

A welfare benefit in the United Kingdom for unemployed persons who are looking for a job. It is available to all unemployed persons of working age (the exact age depends on the minimum age for the state pension). In order to be eligible, one must present oneself to a job center every two weeks to prove one is looking for work. The Jobseeker's Allowance traces its origins to 1911.
