refused child benefit will it affect ILR application?

Post by Ken_nek » Mon Oct 08, 2018 4:16 pm

last 3 months ago my friend's application for child benefit was refused due to subject to immigration control. they thought they were entitled and they were under tier 2 visa but it was refused due to they are still subject to immigration control. Then by next year they are going to apply for ILR since they are already staying 5 yrs.

The question is are their application for ILR next year will be affected?

thanks and looking forward on your expert advise..

Not sure how they thought they were eligible when their visa clearly state "No recourse to public funds".

It should not be an issue though as they did not receive public funds.

Hi CR001

Thanks for your expert advise, thats what I told them they did not received in any way any amount because it was refused..they were just confused since most of the health worker in the hospital advised them that they were entitled being a tax payer in this country so they applied mistakenly although refused.

but one of their friend advised them also that even application for child benefit although it was refused will adversely affect their ILR application, so they are worried.

It may have been more complicated if they were wrongly granted the child benefit (i.e. when the exceptions did not apply). Then, they would have had to pay it all back.

I agree with CR001. They didn't receive the child benefit (as asked in question 5.5).

Therefore, they did not violate 245HE.(d)(i) nor 319D.(b)(i), in relation to child benefit. End of story.
