Read our update on the Social Security aspects of the UK leaving the EU including the UK Government’s opening Policy paper (26 June 2017) and initial negotiations with the EU (17-20 July 2017).
On 26 June 2017 the UK Government published its Policy paper ‘Safeguarding the position of EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU’ which sets out its starting position and approach to the Brexit negotiations with the EU. Whilst the paper predominantly covers immigration aspects of Brexit, social security coordination matters were also considered.
The opening position was further discussed during the second round of negotiations held between the UK and EU on 17-20 July 2017, which was followed by the release of a Technical Note by Task Force 50 (TF50 –the EU’s group of negotiators) which summarises and compares the respective UK and EU positions.
We have produced a briefing note to help you stay abreast of developments.
