When/if the UK leaves the EU, your status will change if you are an EEA national or if your status here depends on an EEA national. It will be a requirement for you to apply for settled status. As of 30 March 2019, the settled status scheme is officially live.

You have until December 2020 or June 2021 to apply, depending on whether a Brexit deal is approved.

Lots of people and organisations are offering advice on what Brexit means for you and your family.
