Latest update: Move to UC

September 2023’s expansion of Move to UC activity to move claimants on legacy benefits to UC will see work commencing in:

  • Cumbria and Lancashire
  • Essex
  • Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, and the Isle of Wight
  • Southwest Wales
  • East Scotland
  • Lincolnshire Nottinghamshire & Rutland.

Whilst October will see work commencing in:

  • South-east Wales
  • Central Scotland.

We are continuing with our small-scale discovery phase for Tax Credit couples; learning and adapting to ensure couples can make a claim to UC effectively before we increase numbers later this year. 

From September we are also starting a separate small-scale discovery phase with other legacy benefit combinations to support our preparation to move households on different combinations of legacy benefits at scale in the financial year ending March 2025.

Furthermore, building on the positive reception of January’s publication Learning from the Discovery Phase which outlined our learnings from the ‘Earliest Testable Service’ cohort (the first 500 Migration Notices issued in Bolton and Medway), we have been working with Ministers to publish Completing the Move to Universal Credit: learning from initial Tax Credit migrations and Move to Universal Credit statistics, July 2022 to May 2023
