Universal Credit Scottish Choices: Management information to end March 2020

This publication contains information on people being offered and accepting UC Scottish choices. It reports on people with new full service claims, existing claims and those people transferring from live to full service.

For the first time, it also includes number of people who revert back to the default delivery of Universal Credit, having previously taken up one or both of the Universal Credit Scottish Choices.

To provide additional context, the publication also includes a subset of DWP’s benefit statistics data on the number of people and households in Scotland on Universal Credit.
