Migrants and benefits: a new guide

Migrants and Benefits cover

Law Centre (NI) has published an advisers' guide on Migrants and Benefits, on behalf of Belfast Integration and Participation Project.

How does immigration status affect a person’s entitlement to benefit?
What is habitual residence?
What does right to reside mean for benefit entitlement?
Migrants and Benefits deals with these and other common issues that arise where migrants need advice on benefit entitlement. The guide is written for advisers and contains tips for dealing with difficult situations and practical guidance.
