Recent court decisions provide guidance on the eligibility of claimants with pre-settled status to apply for Universal Credit

12th January, 2022

Two recent court decisions - Fratila and another v. Secretary of State for Work and Pensions [2021] UKSC 53 and CG v. Department for Communities (C-709/20) - have provided guidance on the eligibility of claimants with pre-settled status to apply for Universal Credit (UC).

Law Centre has recently published a case note which explains both decisions and their consequences for UC claimants in Northern Ireland.

The impact of both Fratila and CG will also be addressed at Law Centre NI’s Social Security Adviser Network meeting on 14 January 2021. You can register for the meeting by following this link.
