You will be contacted by the Department of Work and Pensions and asked to attend an interview.
As part of your agreement to receiving UC, you will need to sign a claimant commitment. This will give details of what is expected of you in order to continue receiving your UC – this will involve an expectation that you will spend 35 hours per week looking for work.
If you are working part-time, you will be expected to demonstrate you are looking for more hours or an additional job.
Failing to keep to your claimant commitment will mean you could be ‘sanctioned’ – which means your benefit will be reduced for a period.
