The Home Office is producing a new, simplified digital system for applications for settled status, the EU Settlement Scheme. Individuals’ status will be recorded electronically and the Home Office will have a long-term record of EU citizens and their family members who are living here with settled status. Those records and relevant Home Office data will be stored securely in accordance with relevant legislation and Home Office data security standards which apply across all data sets within the Home Office. We will provide methods for applicants to view, update and confirm that their data is still on file.

The Settlement Scheme is still being developed and discussed with stakeholders, and we will be setting out further details in the coming months.
