Volume V is divided into six Parts. Part I provides a clear and comprehensive narrative overview and analysis of the scope and structure of universal credit. Part II comprises the relevant primary legislation, principally provisions in the Welfare Reform Act 2012, but also including sections from the Social Security Administration Act 1992 and the Social Security Act 1998. Part III for the most part consists of the main regulations, the Universal Credit Regulations 2013. Part IV contains the Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2014 as well as all relevant Commencement Orders to date, along with phasing provisions. Part V includes regulations governing both claims and payments and also decisions and appeals as they relate to universal credit. The new Part VI includes the key statutory provisions from immigration law which bear on universal credit entitlement (e.g. as regards the right to reside). The text includes both the key statutory material and detailed commentary.
