- It is supposed to be at the discretion of the adviser rather than a blanket approach. But you can be punished if you "unreasonably refuse", so assume that every claimant will be forced to sign up.
- Because of EU laws on cookies, you cannot be forced to sign up on your own home computer - so don't. Use the computers in the Jobcentre, the WP provider office or a public access place such as a library. The PCS says that fixes are being worked out to enable cookies to be removed from home computers, and when that's done they will make it compulsory to register there (assuming you have a computer at home).
- It is still the case that you don't have to give your adviser access to your account. Don't tick the box. You are allowed to provide alternative proof of sign-up and jobsearch, such as screenprints.
If you are going to be affected by this, I recommend printing off the PCS page.
