    If you are a single person without any children how much benefit money can you claim? Can you just claim job seekers allowance or are there other benefits you can claim too?

    Without children you can clam JSA if you are able to work (about £55 a week) or ESA if you are sick (same as JSA at the start)

    If you get Income support you can claim the full LHA for your area

    Not sure how much OP's IS is but I think its meant to be about £70 a week IS and then £60 a week Child tax and £20 Child benefit.
