Thread: Can I get my Benefits abroad?

  1. #1

    Can I get my Benefits abroad?

    Basically my partner and I can not live together in the UK which is my home because I am disabled and unable to work, therefore the UK government will not allow my partner to be with me here.
    So our only options is to live together in Europe somewhere as she is from a Non EU Country. The thing is would I be entitled to my Disability Benefits over there or would I be entitled to the benefits for disabled people in the country I live in, in Europe?

    Hope someone can help?

    If she is from a non EU country then the same rules will apply.
    Why not go and live in her country?

    If you move or travel overseas, you will not automatically receive benefits from the UK. Entitlement will depend on whether your stay abroad is temporary or permanent. You can continue to claim some benefits while you are abroad.
