Universal Credit Managed Migration


The Welfare Reform Group has made a number of recommendations designed to better protect social security claimants who are moving to Universal Credit.
The Welfare Reform Group (an umbrella grouping of organisations that campaign for positive changes to policy, service provision and legislation for persons in receipt of social security)  makes a number of recommendations designed to better protect social security claimants who are moving to Universal Credit. The process of managed migration cannot be commenced without legislation. Regulations have been drafted and are due to be voted on at Westminster. We do not support the regulations as they currently stand because they provide for the termination of legacy benefits if a Universal Credit is not made within a deadline.
 
The Department should design a proper managed migration process whereby claimants are actually transferred through a managed process.
