Province/Country relating to question : London
The whole question is that whether a disabled Finish citizen can get state benefits/ allownces including housing and employment benefit and Disability Allownces equal to what a British citizen in his situation can get, if he comes here and wants to live in England?
Hi - He can get Disability Allowances - but he cannot come to the UK unless he is able to work - and he will only get Contribution based Job seekers allowance if he has worked here first - and if he is unemployed for any length of time then he will have to return home. Claire
