In the past year there have been a number of policy amendments across specific ILR routes. Information relating to these amendments, and the specific ILR routes these affect, are communicated via the GOV.UK website.

There has been no change in terms for those persons who have been granted ILR in the past year. Individuals who hold ILR in the United Kingdom have no restriction on their right to live and work in the United Kingdom. They are able to apply for benefits in the same way as British citizens.
