About the course

Some claimants receiving ‘Legacy’ benefits under the old rules may elect to ‘jump ship’ early onto Universal Credit (UC) because they think it is better for them, or because they have been encouraged to do so by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or other officials. This can result in winners and losers, with no way back.

Other Legacy claimants are sitting tight, waiting for a UC ‘migration’ letter from the DWP that will propel them into UC, at the risk of losing all their Legacy benefits if they fail to comply. This training will look at what this means for claimants.

The course covers

  • Legacy claimants who may opt to switch to UC as early migrators
  • Who may be better or worse off if they choose to jump ship, including special UC support for disabled claimants still on Legacy benefits
  • How Legacy benefit claimants can protect themselves now
  • How much transitional support early migrators may get if they switch early
  • How that support may erode or be lost
  • What will happen when managed migration eventually arrives
  • How the managed migration process will work
  • Deadlines and final deadlines
  • How much transitional support will be payable under managed migration
  • How that support may erode or be lost
