I doubt they would shut because of snow. They would make you come in.

No Chance!, It appears to be one of the worst winters since 1963, So 35 Hour Job Search, calling at local shops, Go on Line ect still Holds,
OR
Get a Sanction and Die on the streets along with millions of others.
Just WHO voted this scum into power

Hello & welcome Esther_McSanctions!

Interestingly, someone has asked a relevant question via the WDTK site:

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/impact_of_recent_snow_on_jobcent

I suspect very few Jobcentres are closed as staff are expected to walk up to 1 hour.  This may have changed.

Adverse Weather and Flexi-time Credits
24 Nov 2010
DWP and CMEC have basic guidance for serious disruption to public transport and extreme weather conditions under Standards of Behaviour and Flexible Working Hours Procedure.

Standards of Behaviour
DWP Standards of Behaviour Procedures, Paragraph 46, states:
“46. In the case of travel disruptions or bad weather, you are expected to consider alternative transport options including walking if less than one hour’s walking distance, or secondly, to consider working from an office location closer to home, or from home if practicable. Consideration will be made for issues of diversity and equality, and for your health, safety and welfare.”

CMEC Standards of Behaviour Policy, Paragraph 31, states:
“31. In the case of travel disruptions or bad weather, you are expected to consider alternative transport options including walking if less than one hour’s walking distance or secondly, to consider working from an alternative Commission office closer to home, or from home if practicable. Consideration will be made for issues of diversity and equality, and for your health, safety and welfare.”

How to avoid a sanction if you cannot get to the Jobcentre:

1. Ring your local office on their free number to check if they are open or email them if you have an address

2. If your Jobcentre is open and you cannot get to your appointment you have to show good reason, for example:

There's no public transport
You have difficulties walking
The journey is too far
You have caring responsibilities

Edit
Some areas are excusing signing:
DWP: Benefit claimants don't need to sign on due to bad weather - and will still be paid
