We often get asked what a Migration Notice looks like.
We have uploaded an example below.
Please note that the DWP are constantly reviewing the wording used in these letters and so the Migration Notices currently being sent out may not have the exact same wording or the same look.
If someone gets a letter or communication from the DWP / HMRC, they will know it is a Migration Notice if it has these words at the bottom:
'This is a migration notice issued under regulation 44 of the Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2014''
Once someone receives their Migration Notice they will have a three month window in which to make their claim for UC (see time limits) and timing of the claim can be important (see timing of the claim)
