We are waiting for full updates following Brexit.  These have not been confirmed; therefore this date is provisional.

Programme - fully revised and updated for 2021, taking into account the legislation changes as well as the latest output from the Upper Tribunal, UK and European courts.

The course will be fully updated to take into account any Brexit arrangements.

This course looks at the two separate schemes regulating access to welfare benefits for claimants who are not British or Irish nationals. The first part of the course deals briefly with the immigration status test for non-EEA nationals: is the claimant excluded from benefit because s/he is a Person Subject to Immigration Control?

The bulk of the day is devoted to claimants who are EEA nationals, and in particular the question whether a claimant has a right to reside in the UK under European law.

We will also be considering the impact of Council Tax Support and Universal Credit on PFA legislation.

Programme includes:

  • Persons Subject to Immigration control (PSIC)
  • Leave to enter/remain
  • Couples: aggregation and NINOs
  • Habitual Residence and the Right to Reside:
  • The job market
  • Work seekers  - including JSA "EEA jobseekers"
  • Workers
  • Retaining worker status
  • Ongoing issues: A2 and A8
  • Croatia
  • Self-employment
  • Permanent right to reside
  • Abandoned family members
  • Children of workers and their carers
  • Self sufficient people and students
  • The current position - how legislative changes in 2019 affect HB
