Managed Migration: The Limits Of ‘Test And Learn’

14th Nov 2023

CPAG’s Hannah Aldridge and Z2K’s Jamie Thunder dig into the latest data about managed migration to Universal Credit.

Today the DWP published the latest data on the outcomes of tax credit claimants who have been sent their ‘migration notice’. This is a letter informing people that they have three months to make a claim for universal credit (UC), at which point their tax credit payments will be terminated. The data reveals that 16,000 people sent a migration notice did not make the transition to UC and had their legacy benefits terminated. This equates to 27 per cent of those who have been sent a migration notice and reached their deadline (based on those sent a migration notice in the first half of 2023).
