If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen living in the UK, you and your family could apply for ‘settled status’ to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. This means permanent residency or indefinite leave to remain in the UK. Once granted, settled status gives EU, EEA or Swiss citizens the exact same rights and benefits as they had before.
Having settled status allows EU citizens to continue being eligible for:
public services, such as healthcare and schools
public funds and pensions, according to the same rules as now
British citizenship, if the requirements are met
If you did not apply before the deadline, you can still apply for settled status provided that you have reasonable grounds for doing so or if your deadline for applying is after 30 June 2021.
