028 9024 5640: Housing & Debt Helpline for Northern Ireland

August 2018

Housing Rights Response to the SSAC Consultation on the Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) (Managed Migration) Amendment Regulations 2018

We welcome the publication of a Consultation asking for views on the Government’s proposed transitional protection measures, which will operate during the process of “managed migration”.

This is the move from legacy benefits onto Universal Credit, due to commence in NI in July 2019.

It is Housing Rights’ view that further evaluation and refinement of these Regulations is required. We have offered the organisation’s views on the housing impacts of these Regulations.
