So is it now mandatory to have a UJM account? Anyone know for sure?
I have UJM account but have not ticked the box giving the job centre access
From the links posted earlier it isn't mandatory, in that not everyone claiming benefits MUST sign up for it, but your JC advisor CAN mandate you to create and account in your Jobseekers Direction document. So basically, it's at the discretion of your adviser. If they give you a new Jobseekers Direction that requires you to sign up then you must indeed sign up, but you still do not have to allow them access.
