star this property answer text <p>We recently laid the draft Universal Credit (Managed Migration) Regulations 2018 in Parliament. These will introduce a transitional payment to those eligible claimants who were in receipt of the Severe Disability Premium whilst on an existing benefit and who have already moved to Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>As announced in the 2018 Autumn Budget, the income related elements of Employment and Support Allowance and Jobseeker’s Allowance, and Income Support will continue for two weeks after a claim for Universal Credit has been made from July 2020. Claimants will therefore receive one two week run-on payment when being migrated to Universal Credit. Both of these measures are subject to parliamentary approval. These payments are in addition to the 2 week run-on of Housing Benefit, which we introduced in April 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has also committed to ensuring that claimants who are moved onto Universal Credit as part of the managed migration process see no decrease in their benefit entitlement, providing their circumstances remain the same.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will be spending over £3bn on transitional protection over the next 10 years to ensure that claimants who are migrated onto Universal Credit as part of the managed migration process do not experience a financial loss at the point of transition.</p><p> </p><p>Transitional protection will be calculated based on the claimant’s circumstances on the last day of their entitlement to existing benefits. To do this we will make a comparison between the total amount of all relevant existing benefits to which the claimant was entitled at this point and the total amount of Universal Credit to which the claimant would be entitled as calculated based on the same set of circumstances. If the entitlement to the existing benefits is the greater amount then the difference will be awarded as a Transitional Element. When awarded, this Transitional Element will be taken into account with any other applicable Elements to determine a claimant’s Universal Credit award in each Assessment Period.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognise that the cost of travelling for rail passengers can seem high – this is why since 2014 we have taken action and capped the regulated rail fares in line with RPI inflation. Train fare revenue is crucial to funding day-to-day railway operations and delivering the investment and massive upgrade programme currently underway, all of which passengers demand and expect. 98p of every £1 in passenger revenue is reinvested in the network to improve passenger’s services.</p><p> </p><p>Tangible benefits to the Sheffield City Region on both the Northern and TPE franchises will become apparent to passengers during 2019 with new trains being introduced, delivering additional services and increased capacity for commuters.</p><p> </p><p>Benefits planned by East Midlands trains are, for long-distance journeys, it will reduce journey times between Sheffield and London by up to 20 minutes in the peak.</p><p> </p><p>There will be a brand new fleet of bi-mode trains serving Sheffield from 2022, with more seats. The first train will enter passenger service by April 2022.</p>
