When a UC application is made what triggers a 'stop notice' to cease legacy benefits?

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

When a UC application is made, what triggers a 'stop notices' to cease any legacy benefits claimed?

ls it someone making a claim for UC, once DWP are satisfied they have passed verification checks and basic conditions or once DWP are satisfied they have satisfied the basic and financial conditions? (or something else)

Yours faithfully,

Andy Pennington
