CIS/1224/2007– Regulation 1408/71, Directive 2004/38/EC

Last updated: February 13, 2012

The issues in this case are as follows:

1. Whether Article 10a EC Regulation 1408/71 means that an EU national who is habitually resident in the UK has a right to receive special non-contributory benefits

2. Whether an EU national who is unable to work due to his/her partner’s illness retains a right of residence

This case has been stayed pending the outcome of the Court of Appeal’s decision in Patmalniece, the appeal against CPC/1072/2006.
