Benefits and Migrants – Webinar – CPD hours 1.5
Many individuals that are not born in the UK will suffer problems obtaining benefits in the UK, and this webinar covers the various ways for them to secure benefit claims due to the complex mix of immigration law, European law, benefits law and human rights law at work in the UK.
This Immigration Law CPD webinar highlights the Immigration Act 1999 and identifies those described as a ‘person subject to immigration control’. It looks at those people already living within the benefit system but are from abroad and examines how similar this condition is to being subject to immigration control.
It also looks at how the Habitual Residence and Right to Reside test is used as a method of screening people for the purposes of receiving income based benefits. It also considers the circumstances of families and couples, especially those with different rights such as a couple with each one from a different country, or people from abroad with children born in the UK.
