Are you an EU citizen claiming Universal Credit?


If you are, you need to update your immigration status on your UC claim. This can be done by providing what’s called your  “share code” to the DWP.

This must be done by the end of October to ensure that your Universal Credit payments don’t stop.


This is how you can find out your "share code"


You can also contact the Home Office online to get information about your status


Talk to your work coach if you are unsure whether your code has been uploaded.

The EU Settlement Scheme


[Updated] EU, EEA, and Swiss citizens, as well as family members from non-EU, non-EEA and non-Swiss countries, need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme if they are planning to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. The EU Settlement Scheme is open to applications and the deadline for applying is 30 June 2021. You can find out who needs to apply by visiting the EU Settlement Scheme page.

Irish citizens’ right to live in the UK has not changed now that the UK has left the EU, but family members who are not Irish or British citizens need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme.
