Level: Standard
This two-day course aims to equip you to advise claimants from abroad, both European and non-European nationals. Using a step-by-step approach and practical examples, it helps you understand how the residence and presence and immigration status tests operate in social security benefits and how they can be satisfied.

The course covers:
• Who is a ‘person subject to immigration control’ and how this affects benefit entitlements
• Effect on benefits of a change in immigration status
• Entitlements of ‘mixed households’
• Residence and presence requirements for benefits
• Which factors are relevant in establishing habitual residence
• The main groups that can satisfy the right to reside test - taking account of recent caselaw developments

This course is aimed at those who give benefits advice to both European and non-European nationals.
If you only advise European nationals you should book on either the standard level course, Right to reside and habitual residence or the experienced level course, Residence and presence tests - in detail.
