Waiting for viva and JSA?

I've just submitted my PhD and struggling to work out what benefits I am eligible for while looking for a job/waiting for my viva/doing future corrections etc - as I am technically still a full time student, would that rule me out for JSA? Or does it not matter as long as I am not actually spending any hours studying?

Also am I still eligible for student council tax reduction as I am still technically a student, or is it not possible to get that as well as JSA?

Basically just very confused what my official status is (seemingly a student and not a student at the same time) and there isn't much information out there, so if anyone has any idea I would really appreciate hearing it!!
