On ILR, you are no longer "subject to immigration control" (hence may vote, get "home fee" status for HE studies, apply for students loan, etc) and you have access to "public funds" (child benefits, etc -- search the forum for more info).

Benefits vary a lot as they depend on individual circumstances. You can use this online benefit checker to see how much you can get.

Not necessarily. As a citizen of a Commonwealth country, I am allowed to vote. I can even stand to be an MP. Just don't know if I can use that route to get ILR ;-)

True ... I guess in correcting a sweeping statement that anyone with ILR should vote ... I shouldn't have made a sweeping statement that only BCs can vote when I knew better :-D
