Apply for Travel Card Discount via Job Center plus 50% Off
UNEMPLOYED workers are being urged to take advantage of a railcard that gives them half-price train travel.
The Job Centre Plus Travel Discount Card knocks 50 per cent off the price of train travel for those looking to find work.
HERE are the rules about qualifying for the travel card:
To be eligible, you must have been claiming Jobseekers Allowance or Universal Credit for at least three months.
There are two cards, one for those aged between 18-24 and those over 25.
You might also be able to pick up the card if you are claiming certain other benefits like Incapacity Benefit and Income Support but are actively looking for work.
The card, which can be used on all train operator services, gives 50 per cent off on Anytime Day tickets, Off Peak Day tickets and three-month season tickets.
