Claimants from overseas - half day course

This course is being run in house.

Programme – fully revised and updated for 2022, taking into account the legislation changes as well as the latest output from the Upper Tribunal, UK and European courts.  This is being run as a half day course.

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
