In March 2020, work was paused on moving those claiming legacy benefits to Universal Credit (UC) - known as managed migration - to focus on our response to the pandemic.

Learning from how UC has operated during the pandemic, and from key insights in the Harrogate pilot, we have revised our strategy for the migration process. This is set out in the ‘Completing the move to Universal Credit’ policy paper that was published on 25 April 2022.

We do not intend to publish the previous evaluation strategy referenced in the UC Programme Board papers in 2019.
