The European Court of Justice(ECJ) ruled in October 2007 that certain disability and carers benefits are sickness benefits. This means they may be paid to people who leave the UK to live elsewhere in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland. The benefits affected are Disability Living Allowance (care component), Attendance Allowance and Carer's Allowance. If your benefit stopped when you moved abroad you may be able to get it reinstated (please click Re-Instatement for more details.)

Following a further ECJ ruling in July 2011, first-time claims for certain sickness benefits can now be made while living outside the UK in another EEA member state. Claimants no longer have to meet the past presence test or be ordinarily resident in the UK at the point of claim as long as they have a genuine and sufficient link to the UK social security system and can show that the UK is the competent member state to pay.

Please call for further details.
