The Benefits for Migrants Handbook is the complete and definitive guide to social security entitlement for people who have come to, or who are leaving, the UK.

With migrants’ rights constantly under discussion, it can be hard to keep up with what has actually changed. Our unique handbook helps you to navigate the full complexity of the immigration and benefit rules, and provides the definitive guide to social security entitlement for people who have come to, or who are leaving, the UK.


What does it cover?

This latest edition, which is fully updated with the latest developments in legislation and caselaw, will help if you are struggling to:

■ identify whether you have a right to reside
■ satisfy the evidence requirements
■ understand the significance of someone in your household having immigration leave with no recourse to public funds
■ be clear how long benefits will be paid if you go abroad
■ check entitlement to asylum support or challenge a decision
■ show that have a ‘genuine and sufficient link to the UK’ and therefore do not need to wait two years to get disability and carers’ benefits
■ work out whether the UK is the ’competent state' to pay a benefit
■ challenge a decision to stop your benefit because you failed the 'genuine prospects of work test'


Fully indexed and cross-referenced to both UK and European legislation and caselaw, the Benefits for Migrants Handbook is an essential resource for all those who need to understand how the rules operate in this complex area.

Who is it for?

This is an essential guide for EEA and non-EEA nationals, asylum seekers and refugees, families with different immigration statuses, claimants coming from or going to other European states, British citizens returning from abroad, and all migrants who need to navigate the complexity of the immigration and benefit rules.

 

For CPAG members and CAB customers, the handbook is available for £30.60. Please contact us on 020 7812 5227 or email: bookorders@cpag.org.uk.
