EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) - Staying in the UK after Brexit
Individuals from countries within the EU, an EEA (European Economic Areas of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and Switzerland need to apply to officially show that they have ‘pre-settled status’, ‘settled status’ or British citizenship.
Citizens Advice are holding drop ins on Tuesdays and Fridays 10-1 to help people complete the online form. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/immigration/staying-in-the-uk-after-brexit/staying-in-the-uk-after-brexit/
They need to apply to EUSS before December 31, 2020.
Early application has been recommended particularly for people who are retired or stopped working due to ill health as they might get settled status immediately.
