From April 2014 (though this may now be June 2014), it is planned that other existing claimants will be migrated to UC (‘managed change’), concentrating at first on those ‘whose work behaviour is most likely to benefit from Universal Credit.’3 Further details were not available at time of writing.Draft UC regulations4 for the main UC rules were published on 15 June 2012 and were the subject of a (now typically short) consultation process, with comments due to the Social Security Advisory Committee by 27 July 2012.

When introduced, universal credit (UC) will see the start of a major restructuring of the social security and tax credits system. UC will be introduced gradually (ie, ‘rolled out’), and current claims of the other means-tested benefits will continue for a time.It is understood that the intention is to have closed income-based jobseeker’s allowance (JSA) to new claims by February 2014, tax credits by the beginning of April 2014 and housing benefit (HB), income support (IS) and income-related employment and support allowance (ESA) by the end of April.That will leave existing claimants of the other means-tested benefits (IS, income-related ESA, income-based JSA and HB, sometimes referred to in this context as the ‘legacy’ benefits) and tax credits.The Explanatory Memorandum says that ‘it is proposed that EU migrants who are workers or self-employed will be eligible for all elements of Universal Credit.We [the DWP] are currently considering whether EU work seekers they [sic] should also be eligible for all elements, or just the standard allowance’.
