Changes to residence rules for claiming benefits - updated briefing

We have just updated our popular briefing explaining the timeline of changes to habitual residence and residence requirements for claiming benefits, which affect both migrants and UK nationals.

This was originally published in August 2014 but some aspects of the changes are now better known. Read the updated briefing here: 

Timeline of changes to the habitual residence and right to reside requirements - updated January 2015

This briefing is of particular interest to advisers and organisations working with migrants, or with UK residents moving back to the UK after a period of residence abroad.
