Benefits for people from abroad

Level: Standard

This two-day course aims to equip you to advise claimants from abroad, both European and non-European nationals. Using a step-by-step approach and practical examples, it helps you understand how the residence and presence and immigration status tests operate in social security benefits and how they can be satisfied.

The course covers:

  • Who is a ‘person subject to immigration control’ and how this affects benefit entitlements
  • Effect on benefits of a change in immigration status 
  • Entitlements of ‘mixed households’
  • How the residence and presence requirements operate
  • Which factors are relevant in establishing habitual residence
  • The main groups that can satisfy the right to reside test
  • How recent changes have affected EEA nationals and their family members

This course is aimed at those who give benefits advice to both European and non-European nationals.

If you only advise European nationals you should book on the standard level course, Benefits for EEA nationals.
