Hi,

I just wanted to double check that my client, a single British person, who has lived in the UK his whole life, can only continue to receive ESA for 4 weeks if he goes to stay with a friend in an EU country? He is not getting medical treatment etc. My understanding is he wouldn’t be covered by the EU coordination rules.

Thanks,

Bez
