EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) Support

As a result of Brexit, all EU, EEA and EFTA citizens and their families living in the UK will need to confirm their immigration status if they wish to continue living and working in the UK. 

To do this, they need to apply for the European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS). Successful applicants will gain either settled or pre-settled status. The current deadline to apply to the scheme is 30 June 2021, but Europia would recommend that EU Citizens contact an appropriate agency as soon as possible. The sooner the application is made, the sooner EU Citizens can confirm their right to stay.

Europia will be posting information about how to apply for EUSS across their social media channels, and will be signposting to additional support services offered. Keep an eye out here for further details on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

More information about the EU Settlement scheme can also be found on the government’s website here

Some Quick EUSS Tips

All EU/EEA nationals need to apply for either Settled Status or Pre Settled status - depending on how long you have been in the UK. Pre Settled status is for those that have been living in the UK for under five years. Settled Status is for EU citizens and family members that have stayed in the UK for five years or longer at the time they apply.  If your child was born in the UK but does not hold citizenship, they also need to be registered for the EUSS. 

If you do not apply, you lose the right to work in the UK, use the NHS for free, enrol in education and access benefits. If you are only eligible to apply for Pre Settled status, you will have to reapply for settled status after five years of residency in the UK, whilst Settled Status does not expire. 

The scheme is free to apply for, but you will need: identification documents such as a passport, birth certificate and a national insurance number. You could also need documents such as P45s or Council Tax bills to prove how long you have lived in the UK.
