PR Application EU Citizen - Timing of Application

Post by dsab85 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 10:06 am

Hello Everyone,

just wanted to quickly pick your brains on my situation. I moved with my (non-EU) wife to Northern Ireland in June 2007, and have been living here ever since.

I applied for a Residence documentation for a EU national in 2007 as a self sufficient person , and it was issued in Sept. 2007. As far as I remember at that time Health Insurance was not a requirement, or at least it was not queried. Said that I actually held private health Insurance via my employer in Ireland (cross border worker), but have only proof of that for the last year.

So my details are:

06/07 - 06/12 => Lived as self sufficient in NI, while being in full time employment in the Republic of Ireland. Held Private Health Insurance, but only have proof for the last year.

07/12 - date => Employed in the UK with the same employer

So currently I am half a year short of 5 years employment in the UK to qualify for PR on it's own. Should I wait for July to apply for PR just based on my UK employment, or should I go ahead and apply now based on 4.5 years employment in the UK and only limited proof of Health Insurance for the self-sufficient years in the UK?

Interestingly we have proved that we had Health Insurance in the past via my wife's ILR application in 2012/2013, but don't have the documents anymore. Could I make a reference to her application to substantiate my "claims"? My wife has actually acquired British citizenship since then.

Thanks,
DSAB

Are you an EEA national (but not British)?

Can you not obtain confirmation of past health cover from employer's HR people?

Yes, I am a EU citizen.

I contacted the Health Insurance Provider, and they told me that they can't Issue any kind of retrospective proof. HR could issue a letter, but it would be of little use as it does not contain any relevant Infos on what it covered etc.

Daniel
