I've read the criteria and have a question around eligibility.

On the 1st of Jan I was unemployed and did not gain employment till the 1st of April. I was unemployed for the first part of the year.

 

Since I am now employed I don't meet this criteria "You are unemployed." but do I fall into any of these categories?

 

On or after 1 January 2020, either

  • you were made redundant
  • your working hours were reduced by 20% or more
  • if you were a sole trader, your business was suspended or there was a reduction in your turnover of 20% or more.

 

I was not made redundant, I resigned from my position in December 2019 and couldn't obtain another job until April.

Based on what you have said, it doesn't sound like you meet any of the criteria.

 

I get the feeling you think the same thing, but are hoping you can qualify somehow.

 

Congratulations on getting a new job, they would be hard to come by at the moment i suspect.
