Hi all,
Just a quick question. If someone already has a PR, does he still need to make a payment of £65 in the test phase ?
Thanks
Nope.

Thanks

Yes. Same happened to me! You should have option to complete the process but need to send your BRP card to home office to verify it. You can include 1st class return envelope when you send it.

hi all
I made an application yesterday for my EEA national wife
Application made: 28/02 at 16.51
Notification email: sent immediately
COA: 1/03 at 8.59
Settled status granted: 1/03 at 10:14
This is absolutely fast service.
I guess i made a mistake and applied myself for PR and now my wife has settled status, i should have waited and this would have been easier

Applied on 21/01 (settled status suggested, which is correct); that means it's been more than 6 weeks and I haven't had a peep since the confirmation that my application was submitted. Should I be concerned or call them? It doesn't look like anyone else has been waiting nearly as long in this thread.

I have. Same application date, same "Settled status" suggested, but in theory this is incorrect and it will be Pre-Setled for me, as only 3 years with RC (although over 9 in UK in total). Still waiting.

Are you non-EU family member, and if so, how long have you been on RC?

Yours is the first case I see of an EU citizen applications taking so long. There are a few of us here who have been waiting as long as you have, but as far as I understand, we are all non-EU who on top of our years residing on EU RC, have more than 5 years in other combined visa categories other than as EU family members, which for some reason makes caseworkers escalate our applications, as not straightforward.

Not sure why this would happen in your case...

I ended up calling them. I was expecting hours on hold, but it was instant :D He said it's still ongoing and I just got unlucky. So at least it's not bad news.

Today a got a phone call from case worker as he was confused with my status, online eligibility was for settled status however I haven’t spent 5 years as a family member so he can only issue me pre settled status. He asked me if I am ok with pre settled status and I said yes, and now he should be sending me result soon

From date of marriage -
Date of marriage to my EU spouse 05/10/2014 so I will be eligible for settled status on the 05/10/2019, hope this makes sense 😊

Hi Mate,
Am in the same situation as you are. Married in 2014. Am on Right to retain. Applied on 21/1/2019.I have called them lots of time but no answer. Yesterday I got a call from the Home Office and asked me the same question as being eligible for settle staus in June and I asked him I am happy to get pe settle status.
I called them today as well and they said the call was not from caseworker its from resolution center and they will escalate my case.
I think you should call them just to get an update.

Regards!

Hi buddy, even I called them so many times. Couple of days ago I requested to escalate my concern to the senior manager and that’s why one of the case workers called me. Today they have replied to my complaint which I made few days ago and confirmed that one of the case workers called me. Even case worker confirmed about him. Today I have submitted another form requesting to send me confirmation of pre settled status. Case worker asked me the same question wheather I am happy or not with the pre settled status. This is kind of annoying as it being taking so long, everytime I contacted them they gave the same silly excuse that cases all assessed on the case by case basis like they do traditionally m.

Hi Mate,
Yeah, its really annoying situation whenever you call them they give the same reply as they have already set their answer.
How you made a complaint. Like do I need to call them.
Please update when you receive an email from them or your decision hope they will send soon.

I will certainly update you, you can fill the online form,which goes to EU resolution team and you need to state in the information section that you would like to make a ‘formal complaint’ to the senior management as EU settlement scheme aims to process all the applications within days or maximum of 2 weeks where they require more information. EU resolution team should act to help all the applicants and also take appropriate steps to deal with their concerns.
