After a series of long delays, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is preparing to introduce the next phase in its roll out of Universal Credit (UC): managed migration. The scheme, which is being piloted in Harrogate ahead of the national launch in July 2020, will force millions of claimants to terminate their existing benefits and apply for UC. The change is predicted to cost 3.2 million families an average of £59 a week, with 600,000 losing their entitlement to bene ts altogether. As the attacks on the working class mount up, an increasing number are being driven to take drastic action to afford to survive. Benjamin White reports.
