    Hi @honda1, I haven't noticed anything recent but I know in 2022 the government wanted to migrate everyone by the end of 2024. We've had an uptick recently in people talking about migration to UC, so I imagine in the next year is likely. We don't have any data on specific regions sorry.

    Though it would not surprise me if it had a backlog like many other parts of the DWP!

    If you aren't too sure about what happens we have an advice page on transitional protection and managed migration. If after that you're still unsure there is also the citizen's advice page about moving to UC. It covers what you can do when you get a migration notice letter.

    Hope this helps!

    I do know they are concentrating on Tax Credits only claimants first. Many people have already been through the migration process in the past few months.

    There’s also a much more detailed guide that I spent quite sometime doing, which you can see here https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/110560/uc-managed-migration-guide#latest
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Oop, I forgot about Poppy's guide! This is a very good guide, highly recommend reading it @honda1 It should answer nearly any questions you can think of with UC migration :)

    Your ESA isn't part of UC and you'll always continue with that for as long as you remain entitled to it. As mentioned in the guide i completed above.  The 2028 timeframe doesn't apply to those claiming Tax credits. For this reason you will be invited to apply for UC anytime in the near future.

    As mentioned in the guide, as you're in the Support Group then you'll be entitled to the LCWRA element of UC from the start of your claim. Your ESA will continue as normal but be deducted in full from any UC entitlement.

    As i advised yesterday because you're claiming Tax credits then you won't be one of those that will be delayed migrating accross until 2028. See my advice here.

     The 2028 timeframe doesn't apply to those claiming Tax credits. For this reason you will be invited to apply for UC anytime in the near future.
