Universal Credit - claimant commitment

People who claim Universal Credit will need to accept a Claimant Commitment before they can receive their benefit payments.

Further information on the claimant commitment can be found in the Related Sites section of this page and covers what the claimant commitment is and how it will help claimants to find work. It outlines the kinds of things that claimants will be required to do in return for receiving Universal Credit, and shows how these depend upon each claimant’s individual circumstances.
