From mid-2019, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will start to move all remaining, eligible working-age benefit claimants to Universal Credit. The proposals are set out in the draft Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) (Managed Migration) Amendment Regulations 2018. The Social Security Advisory Committee is consulting on these regulations and this is the JRF response to that consultation.
