EU Settlement Scheme

Now that we’ve left the European Union (EU), if you’re not a British citizen you’ll need to check your right to stay in the UK.

If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you’ll need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme to keep living in the UK. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2021.

If you think this applies to you, there are steps you must take before the deadline. You'll need to submit an application for each member of your household that this applies to.

The application process is online and free on the website. Please apply as soon as possible. 

Applicants are likely to be given settled or pre-settled status. If you do not have either of these statuses by July 2021 it may affect your right to work in the UK and access benefits.

If you think you might be affected, contact us to speak to your estate officer.
