Looking after you and your family if sanctioned

If you are claiming benefits there are things you need to do to makesure you get paid. These are the rules and if you don’t follow them your money will be affected.

For ESA, you will get your money in the assessment phase but may berequired to attend a work focussed interview.

You may be sanctioned if you fail to attend without a good reason. The sanction continues until you attend and for a fixed period of at least 7 days.If you are a single parent on Income Support (IS) your benefit will be reduced by £14.62 a week (Figures at October 2017) if you don’t take part in work focussed interviews/activity.

Which basically means anything which takes you a step closer back into work e.g. courses, looking for jobs, going to interviews.
