Thanks for your question. Please remember to click ACCEPT once you get my answer.

He has a right to enter the country.

But he would NOT be entitled to a pension, income support or other like benefits.

He MAY be entitled to Housing / Council tax benefit.

But he would not be provided with a home by the Council unless he was in priority need (disability, children etc).

If there any other rights you would like to know, please post here.

Please remember to click accept, thank you.
