  • Child Benefit

    My children and I have got the pre settled status with EU nationality while my wife is not an EU National with Pre settled status.

    can I ask if we can apply for the child benefit? Would it affect our application for settled status or naturalisation in future?

    thanks

    Afternoon,

    This is a very widespread misconception. Claiming any benefits you are entitled to does not affect anything.

    Settled status is based purely on residence and, in the case of a family member, on the relationship subsisting or retaining rights of residence, it does not involve working, financial requirements, etc. Also note that pre-settled status doesn't have No Recourse to Public Funds attached to it like other forms of limite leave, so absolutely not an issue.

    There are no questions about benefits neither in the settled status nor in the citizenship applications, since they are not relevant.
