  1. Government signals commitment to improving bus access for wheelchair users READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-signals-commitment-to-improving-bus-access-for-wheelchair-users
  2. Hi, the answer I need is on the jsa claimant commitment of " most hours I can work each week". The reason is I have a long term disability, 2 years ago on my claim I had this on 24 hours. I started work and claimed working tax credits on 24 hours. but my employer was pushing my hours in a very demanding job for my disability up to 50 plus hours per week. I complained to head office and got no where so resigned from the position. I made a claim for jsa today and the "work coach" said that as I had done 50 hours then 40 hours full time would be on my claim for "hours I can w
  3. I am mightily confused. I have been signing on for 12 months, at the start of my claim I signed a claimant commitment stating I will do X number of steps each week to find work, IE look in papers, ask family and friends, use UJM etc. I completed my job search online and always filled in my activity history on UJM, ensuring I recorded X number of steps as required in my claimant commitment. Part way through the year I was told not to use UJM instead I was given a paper template to fill that stated I must do 35 hours job search per week, this had a section to fill stating the tim
  4. Just after a bit of feedback please. I work nights 4 nights on 4 nights off, the company requires me to attend a 3 day First Aid course, I have no problem with this but these would be on my rest days which are sacred to me due to family ill health at the moment. I work 12 hour shifts on nights but the course is daytime as already stated, I would be attending the course on 3 days that I would be on nights, however, I would start my 4 nights the day previously, the assistant manager has suggested that I come off nights and work 4 12 hour days in order to do the course, I
  5. Universal Credit and your Claimant Commitment. This PDF was issued in February of this year and maybe of interest to some, it may help you understand what is expected from as a claimant and what you need to do to continue to claim UC. It also covers many other things like... Universal Credit changes as things change in your life. Your responsibilities will vary depending on such things as your family, your health and your potential for future earnings. See page one There are many links within this attachment and it would pay you to try to read up on as much as y
  6. Just stumbled on this story, has this been posted on here already? and is it actually being implemented yet ? would appear that this government will stop at nothing when it comes to causing pain and suffering to the poor and vulnerable http://www.welfareweekly.com/dwp-gets-tough-sickness-benefit-claimants/
  7. Hi guys, hope someone can help me with this. Attended my first Universal Credit appointment today and went through the usual paperwork. I’ve not granted them access to my UJM account and didn’t sign the Claimant Commitment after arguing most of the points. I’ve attached it so I could get some feedback first. I’m especially interested about the 35 hours they quote, (29 in my case) I know this isn’t applicable to the JSA agreement, but does the CC still count as a JSA agreement? It all seems very vague and so I don’t want to get caught out. Any links or further advice
  8. The following two extracts from the DWP website endeavour to explain what the Claimant Commitment means: 1 “What the JSA Claimant Commitment means As from 14th October 2013 new jobseekers will have to account more clearly for their efforts to find work in order to receive their benefit. New claimants to Jobseeker's Allowance will now need to sign a Claimant Commitment which sets out more fully what they need to do in order to receive state support - building on current support and providing clear information about the consequences of failing to meet requirements." 2
  9. I will try to keep this brief: We were in financial difficulty and so in July 2012 we gave the keys of our house back to the bank as voluntary repossession and left. We moved from England to Scotland and started afresh. Around xmas time my wives parents forwarded mail from the council to us which was a bill for council tax. I wrote on the bill that we had given the house back to the bank and they should pursue them, and sent it back to the council. Fast forward to October 2013 and we get a letter direct saying we hadn't paid the council tax and that fees had been added. I wrote
  10. Hi, I went and signed on yesterday and had an appointment made for me to see an advisor as I needed to change from a jobseekers agreement to a claimant commitment and that I needed to allow them access to my universal jobmatch account as well as a my work plan booklet, I think that is what it was called. I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety by my doctor but they are reluctant to sign me off, so am I able to mention this next week and will it make any difference. I suffer severe anxiety in new situations and have to even take someone with me when I sign on as I see a dif
  11. Got an interview next week at the JC, supposedly to get me to sign up to a Claimant Commitment document. Now I know new claimants and those who returned from the WP before a certain date could expect to get one, but I thankfully returned later and am still on Post Work Support. Is it now policy for everyone to switch from JS Agreement to Claimant Commitment or are they just trying it on? The way I see it, I already have an existing contract with the DWP - my JS Agreement. I know we're all supposed to have a Claimant Commitment when UC rolls out but that's not happened yet. Afte
  12. Hi guys, I hope you can help me. I signed on for the first time a few days ago. I should have really signed on, a long time, due to not having enough regular work, but i remember how the advisors at the job centre, take pride in intimidation and decided that i would rather be broke than have to deal with their insultive mannerisms. i arrive for my 1st meeting with Advisor 1. She looked like she was very board to see me, the feeling was mutual. After getting me to sign what i had agreed in my online application form, she gave me no copy, she walked m
