Course overview

Those who advise European nationals about their benefit entitlement need to understand how the right to reside and habitual residence tests can be satisfied, and this also requires keeping up to date with legal developments. This one-day course will look at the current operation of the right to reside and habitual residence tests within the benefit rules. The course covers how these tests are satisfied, and focuses on the main groups of European nationals, their family members and certain carers who have a right to reside.

The course covers:

  • The factors that are relevant in establishing habitual residence
  • The main residence rights of European nationals, including as workers, self-employed people, and those who retain these statuses, or have a permanent right of residency
  • Who can derive residence rights as a family member or carer
  • Significant developments in caselaw and legislation

Suitable for

This is not a basic or introductory level course and will only be suitable for people with a working knowledge of the benefits system. It will also be suitable for people wanting a refresher, or to update skills or information
