Universal Credit (UC) was legislated for in 2012. We continue to learn and iterate our approach as we progress the Move to UC activity and remain committed to ensuring that the transition works as smoothly as possible for all individuals. Latest findings of the Move to UC process were published here: Move to Universal Credit – insight on Tax Credit migrations and initial Discovery activity for wider benefit cohorts - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
