You will have to agree to do certain things in order for your UC claim to be accepted and paid. What you will be asked to do will depend on:
If your Claimant Commitment includes a Work-related requirement and you fail to meet that requirement you can be given a Sanction. Please see below
If the proposed claimant commitment requirements are unreasonable or you are not able to keep to the claimant commitment you must register your concern immediately – get advice from deafPLUS as soon as possible.
A Sanction means that your UC payments will be reduced for a period of time. This will either be until you meet the requirement and/or for a fixed period of time.
You can challenge a decision to give you a Sanction through the same process as challenging a refusal to award UC, including appealing to a Tribunal.Date modified: September 22 2021 | Date created: June 04 2020
