The Transition Period is nearly at its end and benefit rules will change for those who arrive in the UK on or after 1 January 2021.

If you are an EU Citizen living in the UK and are receiving benefits, such as Universal Credit, you will be able to continue to do so after 31 December 2020 when the Transition Period ends.

However, to continue to be eligible for benefits you will need to be able to provide evidence you were living in the UK by 31 December 2020 and apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

Settled cannot advise on matters related to benefits and we signpost queries to the Works Right Centre.

If you have not applied yet, do read our pages on applying for the EU Settlement Scheme for further information and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Changes to pre-settled rules

The Home Office announced some changes to EUSS pre-settled status rules on 21st May.

Please do not contact Settled to ask about these changes until we are clearer, as otherwise our service may become overwhelmed.

It is important that we can continue to respond effectively to beneficiaries in need of urgent casework advice and support.
 
We are waiting for more detail, and will update our website information, Facebook forums, and leaflets as soon as possible. Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

The Home Office announcement is here.

We’re here to help you with your Settled Status to remain in the UK. We have 100 volunteers on hand who can provide advice in all EU lanaguages.
