If you’re receiving employment-related benefit payments such as Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or Universal Credit you could suffer a “benefits sanction”. This can happen if you miss Job Centre meetings, fail to achieve agreed objectives or are suspected of attempting benefit fraud. You could then lose ALL your benefit payments for between 4 weeks and 3 years.

You'll get a letter telling you about your decision - it may be changed or you may get an explanation of why the sanction is upheld. The letter will also tell you how you could appeal to a tribunal. Avoid getting another sanction

If you’re struggling to complete all the work-related activities in your claimant commitment, you might be able to get them changed.

Can you challenge the sanction? You can ask for the DWP to rethink their decision if you think you've been sanctioned unfairly. This is called ‘mandatory reconsideration’ - the contact details will be on the letter sent to you about your sanction. You'll need to tell them why you think the sanction was wrong. You can get help on our national website citizensadvice.org.uk if you search for “the arguments for challenging a sanction” and “checking if you were given the right sanction”.
