When you claim Universal Credit you will sign a claimant commitment. A sanction is a cut to your benefits if you fail to meet this commitment without good reason i.e. missing an appointment. Sanctions can have devastating consequences such as increased debt, rent arrears, needing to use a foodbank and mental health issues.
