We cannot predict precisely when a claimant’s circumstances will change as this will be due to a significant change of circumstances that would have caused a new claim to be made to a different legacy benefit. Claimants cannot make a claim to legacy benefits, as these have been replaced by Universal Credit, with national roll-out completed last month.
