  1. I wonder why the DWP felt the need to "improve" the site. It seems ok to me the way it is. Maybe it has new "hidden" functions to check how long we are using it to look for work.
  2. I saw this too. Will we be notified when to open an account with the new service do you think? If not, failure to do so on time could cause a sanction.
  3. Thanks for all your replies. The whole thing seems needlessly complex. Presumably to act as a disincentive for people to want to claim JSA or to make them want to voluntary stop claiming it and move back in with their parents if they are young enough to do so. I’ve just come across a thing called Sector Based Work Academies. What are they? Are they like the notorious Work Programmes of a few years ago?
  4. I've not been sanctioned, but wanted to know in case I ever am.
  5. Do you get hardship payments automatically after the two week period or do you have to apply for them?
  6. Thanks for your reply. Can you explain your answer to question one a bit more? Are you saying it is all stopped or just a percentage—surely it can’t be both?
  7. Hi, I’m new here. Can anyone answer these questions? 1) Is all your JSA stopped when you are sanctioned, or is only a percentage of it stopped? 2) If after being sanctioned you go on hardship payments, do you still have to be available for work? 3) And if you do still have to be available for work, can you be further sanctioned while on hardship payments? I’ve just started getting JSA and have not been sanctioned, but the above questions have occurred to me.
