Managed Migration

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

Managed migration is expected to be complete by March 2025 for most people. People who get Employment and Support Allowance and do not get tax credits are expected to move to Universal Credit by 2028.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will send you a notice letter telling your legacy benefits are ending and what you need to do. If your Universal Credit entitlement is less than your entitlement to your legacy benefits, you will get a 'transitional amount' to top up your Universal Credit.
