Universal credit full service completed its roll-out across the UK in December 2018. Existing tax credit claimants are not affected by the roll-out unless they choose to claim Universal Credit, have a change in circumstances that ends their tax credit claim (and they need to make a new claim) or they need to claim another benefit that Universal Credit has already replaced. Existing tax credit claimants will be moved to Universal Credit through a process called ‘managed migration’.
