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

Under current plans, Managed Migration will be piloted in Harrogate from July 2019 to July 2020, with just 10000 claimants being moved over during the pilot. Managed migration will then start elsewhere from July 2020 and is expected to be completed by December 2023.

The Department for Work and Pensions (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.
