Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
as far as I know settled status is linked to a passport
if the citizenship is worth or not you can decide for yourself; id say yes, but up to you
If you’re a national of a country requiring UK entry clearance you need a valid BRC and passport to return to the UK after travelling abroad. You may be delayed overseas if your BRC has expired or you do not have one.
yes, in 5 years
that's the basis of it, but other members can give better guidanceIf you want to spend time outside the UK
If you have settled status, you can spend up to 5 years in a row outside the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man without losing your status.

I believe this question may have been asked before. I have seen some blogs and etc but I am still bit confused. Here is my situation:
I am a British Citizen with 2 daughters, one with US Passport and the other with UK Passport. My Missus carries a Lithuanian Passport. Both my Older daughter and Missus have Settled status (ILR). Older daughter had a BRP which has expired around October 2021.
1) We are planning to go to Lithuania very soon, will coming back be a problem for my Missus and older Daughter as they don't have a BRP or some kind of card? How will it be checked what's their immigration status?
2) Is it worth doing Citizenship for older Daughter ? or can we get a new BRP or some document like that ?
3) If we carry on as it is, and if she goes off to Uni somewhere in Europe or US or India, will her ILR/Settled status lapse?
P.S - i will post more questions as I m digesting the info, please bear with me....

I think I forgot to mention an important point regarding my query.
You all may know that Ryan Air has got this process whereby their own staff check for Visas etc for Non EU/Non EEA/Non UK passengers.
Our main concern was, how will they do it for our older daughter ? will they require to be shown the email (which itself says its not a proof)? or will they be given the code from Home office website ?
However, if the above question about an airline process is not relevant in this forum, please accept my apologies..
