I, for one, did not know that. Is your banknote valuable?

Sorry, thought I posted twice there.
Valuable? Probably not. But my Anti-Hanging British banknote is.

Getting back on topic
I hoped someone would reply to the original question in the title, if only to confirm that the OP wouldn't be entitled to any, and give another reason for advising potential expats in the same position not to pursue their dream.

If the OP registered as unemployed which she can do but get no money she would "A" get French Lessons if they are still offering them and "B" gain access to the online Pôle emploi "Job Seekers" website if you are not registered applying for the jobs via the site or office is nigh on impossible and that is where you find all the less skilled employment.

I currently work part-time and my husband works full time, but for the first few months upon arrival in France, my husband will be working with his brother in law to earn some money, so i was wondering what benefits, if any, we could claim?

We currently receive DLA for our eldest and Carer's Allowance and i was wondering if they have the same in France or something similar?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Emma
Can I suggest, as a first thing, you read the following thread and the article that goes with it.

Carer's allowance and DLA are exportable to France. See here https://www.gov.uk/exportability-team
