Benefits when returning from abroad
My 34 year old son, who has mental health issues, has been living in Germany for over 10 years. For the last couple of years he has been unable to work and has been living on benefits. He has had problems getting treatment locally and is returning to the UK in the hope of getting treatment and when possible getting work. He will initially be staying with me but we are unsure what benefits he will be entitled to and how he goes about claiming them. He has no savings and the German benefits end as soon as he leaves the country. Any advice would be most welcome.
