We are not, currently, migrating any claimants from legacy benefits to Universal Credit. Claimants only move from existing benefits to Universal Credit through natural migration when they experience a significant change in their circumstances that triggers a new claim to benefit

We do not hold data on the number of claimants that have naturally migrated to Universal Credit.
