The DBC has responded to a consultation by the Social Security Advisory Committee concerning draft regulations published by the Government on their proposals for “managed migration” i.e. the moving of existing claimants of a working age income-related benefit to Universal Credit (UC).
The DBC believes that the Government should not proceed with “managed migration” to UC until the many outstanding problems have been analysed and addressed.
“Managed migration” will affect around three million people (over two million claimants and their families) and as matters stand, it seems certain that large numbers will experience serious difficulties.
