April 2014 Benefit Changes for EEA Nationals

From 1 April 2014, Housing Benefit amendment regulations provide that only EEA nationals who are receiving income-based JSA because they have a right to reside other than as a jobseeker or as a family member of a jobseeker (for example, where they retain worker status) will continue to have a right to reside for housing benefit purposes.

In addition, the regulations provide that EEA jobseekers who are in receipt of both income-based JSA and housing benefit on 31 March 2014 will be unaffected by the change until their JSA claim ceases, or they make a new claim for housing benefit, whichever occurs first
