How much Universal Credit (UC) transitional protection will I get?

Transitional Protection is not available to anybody yet. When it is available, it will only be for some people. Check the What is Universal Credit (UC) transitional protection? page of this guide for more information about who can get it. 

How much Universal Credit transitional protection you will get will depend on what your income is from the benefits being replaced by Universal Credit.

Your transitional protection amount will top your Universal Credit up so that it matches your previous benefit income to ensure you are not worse off due to the move to Universal Credit.
