Uber driver’s wife dies in car crash
Nys unemployment compensation has now become unaffordable for some workers.
Car accident and mental health worker Sarah Henson, who has been employed at a mobile phone company for nine years, has been hit with £15,000 ($21,500) in unemployment payments and is on a waiting list for an affordable car insurance policy.
The unemployed mother-of-three, from the small village of Newbury, in Derbyshire, has lived with her husband and two children in a £30,000 house for six years, with no savings.
The loss of her job has meant that Sarah has been unable to secure a car insurance premium.

“If you’re in receipt of Jobseek Premium, you can use it to make sure you get the best deal for your benefits.”
Sarah has applied for an interim benefit package from Jobcentres Plus, which will be paid out at the start of next year, which could be enough to help cover her costs.
The scheme is only available for those who have a disability benefit, and the payments are set to end on 1 April 2020.
However, Jobcenters Plus said that people who have been working longer than 12 months will have to pay an extra payment.
The spokesman added: “There is a statutory cap on the amount Jobseaker Premium can cover, so if you’ve been working a long time you may need to apply for more money.”
