Claimant commitment This outlines what you have agreed to do in exchange for receiving Universal Credit

Your Claimant Commitment will outline what you have agreed to do in exchange for receiving Universal Credit. It will be based on your personal circumstances and reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis.

It could include things such as:

  • Attending work-focused interviews
  • Preparing for work
  • Looking for work (if you are fit for work)
  • Increasing your earnings if you are already working.

The commitment will also record the consequences of not meeting your responsibilities. If you fail to keep to your Claimant Commitment you may receive a sanction which means you will lose some of your Universal Credit for a certain period of time.

You can view your Claimant Commitment in your Universal Credit online account and also update any progress on your goals.

If you claim Universal Credit as a couple, you will each have a Claimant Commitment depending on your circumstances.

  • We’ve put together lots of useful hints and tips for finding work to searching for a job and creating a CV to acing that interview.
