You’ll usually get settled status if you’ve:

  • started living in the UK by 31 December 2020
  • lived in the UK for a continuous 5-year period (‘continuous residence’)

Five years’ continuous residence means that for 5 years in a row you’ve been in the UK for at least 6 months in any 12 month period, except for:

  • one period of up to 12 months for an important reason (for example, childbirth, serious illness, study, vocational training or an overseas work posting)
  • compulsory military service of any length

What Are Your Rights With Settled Status?

If you have settled status you can stay in the UK as long as you like. You can also:

  • apply for British citizenship, if you’re eligible
  • work in the UK
  • use the NHS
  • enrol in education or continue studying
  • access public funds such as benefits and pensions, if you’re eligible for them
  • travel in and out of the UK

You can also bring close family members to the UK after 31 December 2020 if both of the following apply:

  • your relationship with them began before 31 December 2020
  • you are still in the relationship when they apply to join you

If your relationship with them began after 31 December 2020, your family member will be able to come here on a family visa. Any children born in the UK while you’re living in the UK with settled status will automatically be British citizens.

You should be able to spend up to 5 years in a row outside the UK without losing your settled status.

Viewing And Proving Your Settled Status

If you successfully apply under the EU settlement scheme for settled status, the Home Office, UKVI will email you a link to an online service that you can use to view and prove your settled status. You will not get a physical document unless both of the following apply:

  • you’re from outside the EU
  • you do not already have a biometric residence card
