The Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2014 provided for transition to UC and these were amended in 2019 by the Universal Credit (Managed Migration Pilot and Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2019 providing for managed migration.

A short instrument containing some amendments to the 2014 and 2019 Regulations is being considered. This instrument will be subject to the negative procedure.
