EU migrants to ‘Pay in’ before UK taxpayers ‘Pay out’
New regulations mean that under Universal Credit no EU households will be able to access means-tested benefits in the UK without having worked here first.  Action has already been taken to halve the amount of time EU jobseekers can claim Jobseeker’s Allowance, Child Benefit & Child Tax Credit and means that if they don’t have a job after 3 months they will lose their right to reside in the UK.  New migrant jobseekers are also now unable to claim Housing Benefit.
