Universal Credit

Explicit Consent (2017)

Universal Credit changes the way that third parties / advisers can liaise with the Department on a claimant’s behalf. This paper explains the changes and urges the Department for Communities to agree a mechanism whereby third parties can continue to assist and support benefit claimants.

Managed Migration (2018)

From 2019 the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) will commence managed migration, which involves moving claimants to Universal Credit from their legacy benefits. In this response to the Social Security Advisory Committee, we outline our grave concerns about the planned managed migration process. We propose a different process that would help ensure claimants retain access to Transitional Protection.
