Re: Is ILR settled status?

Settled status is indefinite leave to enter/remain. Pre-settled status is limited leave to remain under the EU settlement scheme. Benefit entitlement depends on (a) your immigration status and (b) eligibility conditions for the specific benefit.

Re: Child Benefit while on pre-settled status (EU scheme)

The child should obtain status under the EUSS but it isn’t a requirement to get child benefit (that’s based on parent’s status).

Re: Child benefit claim by mistake

Why are you not eligible? It shouldn’t be approved if you are subject to immigration control. You can contact HMRC child benefit helpline on 0300 200 3100 to withdraw a claim.

All your reasons are about ignorance of the law, that doesn’t fit what the DWP would expect to see, it’s still worth a go.

When you can backdate You can only backdate your claim if you have a good reason - for example a close relative died or you were given wrong advice by the Jobcentre. You'll usually need to have looked for a job and been available for work from the day you want your JSA to start. If this wasn't poss...

You can claim UC as you’re British, it should not effect your wife’s settlement insofar as no additional benefits are paid in respect of her, assuming you will not have other tenants on the tenancy but for you and your wife, that should be ok. Your older child, I assume has NRPF, there is a potentia...

If you are British/settled then it’s fine if you claim PIP and will not affect your spouse’s application. In fact, it’s an exception to the general financial requirement for a spouse visa.
