As the media continues to focus on the uncertainties of Brexit, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, has recently sought to provide some reassurance to EU citizens currently living in the UK. Last month, the PM wrote an open letter to EU citizens stating that “EU citizens living lawfully in the UK today will be able to stay” after Brexit. The PM sought to allay fears, not just about residence but, also about healthcare, pensions and other benefits. She stated that EU citizens who had paid into the UK system would continue to benefit from those contributions. She also signalled her commitment to making the process of applying for UK settled status in the future as simple and low costs as possible. See the full text of the PM’s letter.
