Many EEA Nationals are being refused Universal Credit when they do have the right to claim.
The rules around which EEA Nationals can claim are complex - with many different 'routes' to claiming.
So we have devised a mapping tool to help you work out whether an EEA National may have the right to claim Universal Credit and which of our Standard Letters they should be using to either take to their 'Habitual Residence Interview' or to challenge a refusal.
As everyone's circumstances are different we may not have factored them all in - but we have done our best! Please let us know if you have a case it doesn't seem to answer: firstname.lastname@example.org
