  • DWP - Move to Universal Credit Update

    Created: 18/09/2023
    News/Events Category: Employability


    September's expansion of Move to Universal Credit (UC) activity to move claimants on legacy benefits to UC will see work commence in 12 locations, including East Scotland. In October, they will begin work in Central Scotland. 

    DWP are continuing with small-scale discovery phase for tax credit couples, learning and adapting to ensure couples can make a claim to UC effectively, before numbers increase later this year.

    From September, DWP are commencing a separate small-scale discovery phase with other legacy benefit combinations, to support preparation to move households on different combinations of legacy benefits at scale in 2024-25.

    Building on the positive reception to January’s publication Learning from the Discovery Phase which outlined learnings from the Earliest Testable Service cohort (the first 500 Migration Notices issued in Bolton and Medway), DWP have published: Completing the Move to Universal Credit: learning from initial Tax Credit migrations and Move to Universal Credit statistics, July 2022 to May 2023.
