Managed migration

The process by which claimants will be selected and moved by the DWP from their legacy benefits to universal credit (the DWP is running a pilot of the process from 24 July 2019). If you are managed migrated, transitional protection will be available in the form of an extra ongoing amount to make up any shortfall between what you were receiving from your legacy benefits and what you would receive from universal credit.
