From 2019 the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will start to move claimants on one or more of the following benefits to Universal Credit:
- Working Tax Credit
- Child Tax Credit
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Income Support
- Housing Benefit
The proposals are set out in the draft Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) (Managed Migration) Amendment Regulations 2018.
The Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC) has begun this consultation to help inform the advice it provides to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions on the proposals.
