CPAG’s Benefits for Migrants Handbook has firmly established itself as the leading text on social security entitlement for people who have come to, or who are leaving, the UK. Following the end of the post-Brexit transition period on the 31st December 2020 new rules have taken effect from 1st January 2021, which significantly change the benefit entitlements of migrants. The publication of the 13th edition of this Handbook is timed to ensure advisers get the latest information on these changes.
Information to help you establish the immigration status of your clients is provided in addition to comprehensive details on the benefit entitlements that result from that status, including specific rules that apply to refugees and others granted leave following an asylum claim. The Handbook is fully indexed and cross-referenced to both UK and European legislation and caselaw.
The Benefits for Migrants Handbook should be on the desk of everyone advising European and non-European nationals living in the UK, and claimants of all nationalities who have recently arrived in the UK or who are going abroad.
