A maintenance undertaking is a written pledge given by a friend or family member, under UK immigration rules, to be responsible for your financial support and accommodation. If you are granted immigration leave to enter or remain in the UK as a result of a maintenance undertaking, you are defined as a person subject to immigration control and as a result you will not be able to claim some welfare benefits for 5 years, unless the person who gave the undertaking has died.
