Tax credits and some benefits are ending

Managed Migration is where people getting legacy benefits will have their claims transferred to Universal Credit.

The Department for Works and Pensions (DWP) is writing to people whose tax credits or benefits are ending. You must claim Universal Credit by the date on the letter to continue getting financial support.

Managed Migration was piloted in Harrogate from July 2019, but the pilot was paused in 2020 due to Covid.  Managed migration starts up again throughout the UK from 9th May 2022 and is expected to be completed by December 2024.

DWP will write to you when they want to move you to Universal Credit telling you what you need to do.  If your Universal Credit entitlement is less than your entitlement to legacy benefits you will receive a 'transitional amount' to top up your Universal Credit.
