    No- it starts from the date that you made it. You can apply for backdating depending on the reasons for not claiming sooner. Your 26 weeks for a budgeting loan start again I’m afraid.

    I applied for a bugeting loan on the 22-06-12, they recieved this on the 27-06-12. i receicved the declaration on the 4-07-12 and posted it back to them the same day (i put 1st class stamp on it). on the 8-07-12 i rang them up and was told to ring back yesterday, which i did but they couldnt tell me anything and said id get a call back which i got today. there saying that they havent recieved it so they will send me another form which i might get b4 weekend. so basically does that mean im going to have to wait all that time again plus however long it takes for them to put it into my account? is there no way i can fast track this? or maybe fax it back to them, as im desparatly needing the money as my cooker has been condemed(think thats the right word) by the gas man as unfit to use and dangerous. please help

    Would someone who has been sanctioned on a JSA claim and is in receipt of hardship be entitled to a budgeting loan? And if not, when the sanction ends would they be eligible if the sanction was for more than 28 days?
