This module provides an overview of the various tests applied to different benefits that can be claimed by European Economic Area nationals.

By the end of the course participants will:
• Know which benefits have a presence test, which benefits have a residence test and which benefits are subject to the Habitual Residence Test;
• Have gained an awareness of the different Right to Reside categories and how they can help EEA nationals satisfy the eligibility rules for means tested benefits.
