To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to publish further details of the planned test and trial phase of Universal Credit managed migration; and how managed migration will impact vulnerable claimants.

As part of our design process for managed migration we are considering different approaches for how to best migrate claimants onto Universal Credit. We are currently working closely with a large and diverse range of stakeholders to design migration processes that work for everyone and most effectively support those who will need more help. We have said that we will begin managed migration on a small scale in 2019 to pilot our processes and ensure that they are working, adapting them and building on feedback before we begin to take on larger volumes of claimants.

In our published response on 5 November 2018 to the Social Security Advisory Committee’s report, we have committed to publishing an assessment of the managed migration pilot once it is complete, and prior to scaling up managed migration.
