  • Overview and introduction
  • Right to Reside groups

This part of the course identifies the different groups we might work with in relation to benefits and European migrants. It also provides an overview of the different tests that are applied. This part of the course goes on to look at some of the main Right to Reside groups and considers how to approach a case involving the Habitual Residence Test.

By the end of part 1 participants will:

  • Be able to identify different groups of migrants and how we should approach benefits advice for each group.
  • Be aware of the residence and presence rules for each of the main benefits that migrants can be entitled to.
  • Be able to recognise the necessary links to work that can entitle some European migrants to benefits involving the Habitual Residence Test.
  • Be familiar with worker status, retained worker status, self-employed status and retained self-employed status.


  • Right to Reside groups (continued)
  • Further practice

This part of the course continues to look the main Right to Reside groups and considers how to approach a case involving the Habitual Residence Test. This part of the course goes on to practice what has been taught and returns to the broader issues we should consider when working with European migrants.

By the end of part 2 participants will:

  • Be familiar with the rights of an EEA jobseeker, family member rights, the permanent right to reside and the derivative right to reside.
  • Be able to use a systematic approach to understand the benefits rights of European migrants.
  • Have had an opportunity to consider a range of scenarios that may come up in their work.
