I was told I may not be able to claim Job seekers allowance as I had a shortfall in my National Insurance in the year 2002 (I had my daughter in 2002) I asked if this should be taken into consideration and was told no. I have worked ever since I left school and now when I am asking for help I am being told I may not be entitled. This just sounds wrong.

A shortfall that long ago should not affect your claim. You have been paying class 1 contributions whist you've been working? What you do anyway is make the claim, they'll let you know if you're eligible. If they say you're not they'll explain why and you can appeal. As I said a shortfall 7 years ago is too far back to affect you now, there must be more to it.
