This experienced level course looks in detail at the social security rights of EEA nationals and their family members in the UK. It provides an opportunity for advisers who are familiar with some of the more commonly occurring scenarios to focus on specific complex areas and recent significant developments.
The course covers:
Social Security co-ordination with other EEA states since the end of the post-Brexit transition period, in particular what this means for disability and carer's benefit claimants in the UK
Which EEA nationals can still use free movement rights to satisfy the right to reside requirement
Recent and anticipated changes in the rights of EEA nationals and their families including the EU Settlement Scheme
This course is aimed at those who advise European nationals on their benefit entitlement regularly and help with challenging decisions. Those with less experience should book instead on the standard level course Benefits for EEA Nationals.
