Assessing sufficient resources under EU rules

The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006 (‘the Regulations’) state that a European Economic Area (EEA) national self-sufficient person or student and their family members must have sufficient resources available so they do not to become a burden on the social assistance system of the UK.

When deciding if an EEA national and their family members have sufficient resources you must first check if they exceed the maximum level of resources which a British citizen and their family members can have before they no longer qualify for social assistance under the UK benefit system.

If they do exceed the maximum level then you must accept that they have sufficient resources.
