Why are you on Income Support? Are you claiming Incapacity Benefit due to illness/injury?
If so, get your doctor to sign you off, let the DSS know this, and call the local jobcentre or call centre (if the office has converted to Jobcentre Plus).You felt the pulse...now hear the cry.

i'm not on incapacity benefit, but i'm on income support due to an operation i had earlier this year.
so its just a case of letting the DSS know?

Yes, tell them you now feel fit for work.
Call or visit the jobcentre. They will either give you or post a JSA1 claim form and an appointment to go in for a New Claim interview. Make sure the form is filled-in all the way to the back, as you need to claim JSA (Income Based), which is the equivalent of Income Support.You felt the pulse...now hear the cry.

You can appeal against the result, though, and still receive IS at a lower rate.You felt the pulse...now hear the cry.
