Saved. B) Just to clarify, this is the same form as the ESA50 that claimants would fill out to claim ESA. Under Universal Credit, it is now called the UC50.

Also, I thought this would be appropriate to post here too. Please have a read of this webpage relating to claiming Universal Credit and how it affects ESA, claiming it and what you will continue to be paid or what you won`t be under new rules that were introduced in April 2017. Crucially, I have copy & pasted a paragraph from this page to show that your Claimant Commitment can be changed at ANY TIME whether you are asking for a work capability assessment or not. A Claimant Commitment has to be tailored and realistic to YOU, to avoid sanctions.

www.gght.org.uk/our-services/welfare-reforms/Pages/Changes-for-people-who-have-a-Limited-Capability-for-Work.aspx

*Remember that you can ask for your Claimant Commitment to be reviewed at any time (whether you request a Work Capability Assessment or not) – so if you have health problems, discuss these with your work coach. It is important that your Claimant Commitment is realistic, to avoid the risk of being sanctioned.*

" A Claimant Commitment has to be tailored and realistic to YOU, to avoid sanctions."

Yes Comply but dont forget that the CC is written in a way to have the "chance" of trapping people for a sanction just like the design of UJM. ;)

If my CV was truly based around my circumstances I'd never work again so they pile all the junk under the sun to be seen as "acting reasonable. :cheer: "

Its down to the joe club to decide if they think the CC is tailored to our circumstance and they make that as difficult as possible on UC, start to disagree with their loony proposals and "your seem to be avoiding looking for work" as we think it's reasonable you do xyz :evil:

What i really dont like is when people have done the a-z of their so called CC requirement and then still sanctioned at a later date passed off as "admin/clerical error :evil: "

We all can only do our very best to tick their stupid boxes and nod our heads in the right places as after all, when they want to flick the kill switch on the UC desk they certainly will.

Unemployed:Always guilty until proven innocent :evil:

Absolutely jobber and you wrote:

I know exactly what you mean. They will suggest that we have X and Y on our commitment but we don`t want it there. But refuse and be ready to have a water tight explanation as to why or they could, as you said, say that we are avoiding or refusing to comply. That`s why we should have a rough idea of what our CC should have written within it before it`s created. Something I will be working on for any CC I have to agree to. They do have to consider mobility, mental and/or physical limitations also and cannot justify adding instructions to a CC if they are unreasonable to someone`s ability to do them. But that`s up to the individual to produce evidence of this and why they cannot reliable carry out particular tasks.

Hi Paul,

When was this form for UC actually introduced, is this just given to people when they first apply for UC or only in the case of disclosing pre existing medical conditions at the time of application ?

The questions on that form are absolutely ludicrous, can you pick up a pint of milk etc etc blah bloody blah,definitely designed by a politician no doubt.

They are ridiculous jobber and many of the descriptors don`t apply to some people trying to claim ESA which is why the special circumstances or `regulations 29 (WRAG) and 35 (Support Group) are now used by many to argue that they would be at `substantial risk` if not found to have limited capability for work or work related activity. Something I have been looking at recently to apply to my next re-assessment just to add further justification to my claim. Even though for my last two ESA assessments I have clung on to two descriptors to get the 15 points required, for me, they don`t bother to look any further into why someone`s health problems also limit them further than a few descriptors.

Being disabled for example can mean someone has restrictive movement or they cannot do certain activities due to having their disability. While someone like me who suffers from chronic pain won`t be categorized as being `disabled` in the same sense. Which is why many people with pain issues are seen as non-disabled, even though pain can be a `disabling` feature of their lives.
