    UC transitional payments

    UC transitional payments 10th Sep 17 at 4:14 PM
    Our area moves to full UC in November. Am I right in assuming (having read lots of conflicting advice) that we will be given transitional payments meaning that we won't suffer financially when natural migration takes place?
    Currently we receive

    IR ESA (support) couples rate including SDP (couples rate)
    One receives DLA mid care lower mobility
    One gets PIP standard rate care
    HB and CT help.

    TIA

    Natural migration takes place when there is a change of circumstances - for example moving to a new area and having to make a new claim for housing costs. People who are naturally migrated to UC have no transitional protection.

    Managed migration will not happen until (currently) 2019 and there is transitional protection when this happens.

    Yes, re managed migration.


    The only addition to what pmlindyloo says, is that where eg a claim is closed in error by the DWP, that doesn't result in migration, as long as there is no more than a one week gap between the old and 'new' claim - because it is not a new claim in reality but due to official error.
    Please be polite to OPs and remember this is a site for Claimants and Appellants to seek redress against their bank, ex-boss or retailer. If they wanted morality or the view of the IoD or Bank they'd ask them.
