Level: Standard
NOS: LA50, LA57, LA58

Advisers can find it difficult and intimidating to advise non-European nationals on how their immigration status affects entitlement to benefits and tax credits. This one-day course offers an opportunity for advisers to gain knowledge and confidence by taking an in-depth look at the rules and how they apply to different scenarios.

The course covers:

• Who is a ‘person subject to immigration control’
• Which benefits they are excluded from and the exceptions
• When a ‘no recourse to public funds’ restriction is relevant
• How a change in immigration status affects entitlement to benefits and tax credits
• The benefit entitlement of people living with a partner or child with a different immigration status
