What does Universal Credit replace? Payment is replacing six benefits | Personal Finance | Finance

The DWP said it would initially select claimants for the pilot from those that currently attend the Jobcentre for meetings with their work coach.

Once ready, claimants are given a migration notice, the DWP said, giving them at least three months to submit a claim for Universal Credit.

Legacy benefits claimants who do not have a higher entitlement on Universal Credit are eligible for transitional protection, the DWP said, meaning they would not lose out financially when they change.

The first phase of the rollout to job centres was completed in 2018.
