A list of the west London Jobcentres marked out for closure by The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has been revealed in an exclusive Daily Mirror report.
Over the next seven months 87 UK Jobcentres are due be axed including five in west London.
This follows the government's announcement that one in 10 Jobcentres around the UK were to be closed this year - with the loss of up to 750 jobs.
But this figure has now jumped to include a further 58 in 2018 - including five in Glasgow alone.
The shake-up will put a total of 500 roles at risk - although the DWP says the "majority of staff will remain in their current offices with others moving to another DWP site nearby".
Some staff will be placed on its voluntary redundancy scheme.
The DWP told Mirror Money the closures will see some smaller Jobcentres merge with larger ones, while others will be co-located with local government premises to deliver multiple community services in one place.
A further 40 to be moved into local authority buildings under 'efficiency' savings while four will be moved to new premises.
It said the changes will save more than £140 million a year over the next 10 years and will offer better value for the taxpayer - it added that 80% of Jobseeker’s Allowance and 99% of Universal Credit applications are now made online.
The DWP said five new larger branches will open - although could not say where these would be - in a phased approach starting in 2018 that will see 26 corporate sites shut.
The closures come amid the widespread roll-out of the controversial Universal Credit - the government's new six-in-one benefits system.
According to Citizens Advice, 24% of new claimants are having to wait longer than six weeks for a payment - which could make matters worse if they're unable to visit their local branch.
The charity also warns that a third of people that have had difficulties with the system have made more than 10 calls to the Universal Credit helpline, often having to wait more than 30 minutes to get through.
To counteract issues with length wait periods for payments to come through, the government has said people will now be able to get advance payments to help cover rent and bills - however with closures imminent, these claims may have to be processed online or via the phone only.
Jobcentres and benefit centres are covered by Public Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts which are now coming to an end.
In the 20 years since these contracts were signed, the welfare system has undergone significant reform, with employment now at a record high.
Damian Hinds, Minster for Employment said: "We will always make sure that people have the support they need to get into and progress within work. These changes reflect the fact that more people access their benefits online resulting in many of our buildings being underused.
A DWP spokesperson told Mirror Money: "The changes we are making to our estate across the country will offer a more efficient service, and deliver good value for the taxpayer - saving over £140 million a year, for the next 10 years."
In January, the DWP published a full list of Jobcentres earmarked to be "divested" in the year to December 2017.
These are the west London closures that have been confirmed for the next seven months.
