Benefits for EEA Nationals
Advising EEA nationals on their entitlements to social security benefits can be complex and this has been compounded by to the impacts of corona virus. What does an EEA national need to show if they worked, then were furloughed and have now been made redundant and need to claim universal credit? What if an EEA national was self-employed and then became too sick to work? When is a family member in the UK relevant? Would it make a difference if my client applied to the EU Settlement Scheme?
This 'one day' course will be delivered remotely using Zoom over two half day sessions. It looks at the main rules that particularly affect EEA nationals, and focuses on the right to reside, habitual residence, and past presence tests. It will also summarise what is known of future benefit changes affecting EEA nationals and their family members.
The course is suitable for those with a working knowledge of benefits, and who sometimes provide benefit advice to EEA nationals.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, this course will be delivered as an online webinar over two half days:
