    I am about to apply for universal credit after recently becoming a single parent of a beautiful 2 year old . I work 15.5 hours a week (something that was supported by my now ex Partner) but am worried about what UC group I’ll be put into and what my claimant commitment will be. I’m scared that I’ll be pressured into increasing my hours / finding additional work whilst my baby is so young and that I’ll lose the precious time we have together.

    Prior to having my baby I worked 40+ hours a week so I’m not afraid of work, I just had to wait a long time for him.  I’m in my 40s and cannot have any more so I want to enjoy every pre school moment  with him.
