Managed Migration

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

All managed migration notices are expected to be sent by the end of December 2025. 

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.
