Briefing Paper
‘How might Brexit affect me?’

Case Study 1- Education

Marie is a French national who has lived and worked in Northern Ireland since 1989. Marie has two daughters. When they were born, Marie was informed that, as their father is Belgian, her two daughters were not entitled to British citizenship on birth. They are French citizens.

Her eldest daughter Anna was born in Belgium; her second daughter Brigit is aged 15 and was born in Northern Ireland.

Anna is studying in Manchester University and is in receipt of a student loan and an education grant.

Marie is concerned that, post Brexit:

1. Anna may not be entitled to continue with post-graduate study in the UK or receive any education grants

2. Whether Brigit will have the right to study in the UK, and access government financial support after 2019.

Case Study 2 – Health

Lorenzo is an Italian national who came to live and work in Northern Ireland in December 2017. Lorenzo who works in a low paid job suffers from epilepsy which he manages effectively with medication.

Lorenzo is concerned that post-Brexit:

1. He will not qualify for access to health care and will have to pay in full for his medication which he would struggle to afford.

Case Study 3 – Pensions

Deirdre is a UK national who was born in Northern Ireland in 1965. She is an internationally recognised IT expert who has been working in two EU countries advising on IT projects. She spent 5 years working in Spain; followed by a second 5-year period working in Poland.

Deirdre is concerned whether post Brexit:

1. Her 10 years working and paying tax and insurance abroad will be counted towards her UK state pension?

2. Her tax and insurance contributions via the tax systems in Spain and Poland will be honoured by the Spanish and Polish governments and forwarded to the UK’s Inland Revenue?

Case Study 4- Residency

Dominique is a French national who has lived in Northern Ireland since 1989. She studied archaeology full-time at Queen’s University Belfast for four years before finding employment as a French teaching assistant.

She has separated from her husband and has worked part-time while she brought up her two daughters. Currently Dominque is employed 16 hours per week teaching French in a local school; she works term time only and is not paid for three months (June, July, August) each year.

She pays National Insurance contributions and expects to draw her state retirement pension when she retires. As she is on a low income she has no retirement funds; she lives in rented accommodation and has no other financial assets.

When Dominique started working in Northern Ireland she enquired about the legal requirements and proof of her permission to reside and work here. She was informed ‘we don’t bother with that in Northern Ireland’.

Dominique’s questions are:

1. After Brexit, will she be required to meet a minimum financial threshold in relation to being permitted to continue to reside in Northern Ireland?

2. Will she be entitled to claim the state retirement pension?

3. What official documentation, if any, must she have to prove her right to remain or achieve settled status?

4. How much will it cost to provide the necessary documentation to prove her right to remain?

‘It would be catastrophic for us if we had to go back to France; my daughters have never lived there and the youngest has minimal French language; is too late for me to find something better’ says Dominque.

Case Study 5- Residency

Tomas is a Hungarian national who has lived and worked in Northern Ireland since 2014. His partner of 4 years, Julie, came to live with him in June 2017. She has worked in NI since June until September 2017, but has given up work because she is pregnant.

Tomas and Julie are not married; their questions are:

1. After Brexit, what proof of their relationship will be required to show that Julie is Tomas’ family member?

2. What will it cost to acquire documentation to prove that their relationship is genuine?

For more information, go to: https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/eu-eea-commonwealth

Case Study 6- Residency

Bartek is a Polish national who came to live in Newry at the beginning of 2017. He is employed as a skilled operator in an engineering firm in Monaghan. He lives in an apartment in Newry and travels to and from Monaghan each working day.

Bartek will not have lived in Northern Ireland for five years (entitling him to permanent residence) by March 2019, the date the UK plans to leave the EU.

Bartek is concerned about his right to continue to live in Northern Ireland and to access health care and other social security benefits after Brexit. As a worker exercising his EU Treaty rights, he is a ‘qualified person’ and is currently entitled to residency and to access health and other benefits in Northern Ireland.

Bartek’s questions are:

1.How will his legal status, residency and citizen’s rights change after Brexit?

2.Will he be entitled to apply for ‘settled status’?

3.Can he qualify for EU Treaty rights (e.g. workers’ rights or protection from employment discrimination) in his workplace in Monaghan?

Case Study 7- Residency

Saorise is a British citizen living and working in Northern Ireland. She has been married to Ahmed, an Iranian citizen, for 20 years. Ahmed’s mother, who until recently lived in Teheran, is unwell and as she needs to be cared for by her son and family, she has come to live permanently with Saorise and Ahmed in Northern Ireland.

Saorise is concerned that after Brexit:

1.Ahmed’s mother’s rights to residency will not be guaranteed

2.Her right to free continuing health care will not be recognised.

Case Study 8- Residency 

Eva is a Lithuanian national. She came to Northern Ireland to find work in 2016. She found a job on her arrival and worked as a canteen assistant for a year, when she was dismissed.

Eva has been unemployed since November 2017. She met and married Manuel, a Mexican citizen, in 2016.

As Eva is not currently exercising her Treaty rights, she is concerned that post Brexit:

1. She may lose her right of residence in the UK/NI

2. Manuel may lose his right to reside in the UK with her.

For more information, go to: https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/family-visas; see also https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/eu-eea-commonwealth

Case Study 9- Residency

Judit is a Hungarian national who came to live and work in Northern Ireland in January 2017. Judit’s daughter Zoe has remained in Hungary where she is undertaking a 4-year university degree course.

Judit’s questions are:

1. After Brexit, will Zoe be entitled to come and live with her mother in NI when she completes her studies in 2021?

2. Will there be any restriction on Zoe’s permission to come to live with her mother in Northern Ireland; e.g. will Zoe be required to demonstrate that she is financially self sufficient? What would that mean?
