April 2013 – Proposed Changes Affecting EEA Nationals
A presumption that EEA nationals are not entitled to benefit after six months is to be introduced from 2014.
In a speech on immigration Prime Minister David Cameron said that, in early 2014, the government will create a statutory presumption that after six months an EEA national can no longer retain their status as a jobseeker or retained worker and continue to claim benefits, unless they can demonstrate they have actively sought work throughout that period and have a genuine chance of finding work.
