Enim excusatio est et minime accipienda
Since January 1, 2021, the United Kingdom has been a third country to the European Union. EU law has ceased to apply in the UK.
A trade and cooperation agreement was signed with the United Kingdom on December 30, 2020. Since January 1, 2021, this agreement has determined the rules applicable to relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union in a number of areas. The withdrawal agreement, which entered into force on February 1, 2020, remains applicable for the areas it covers.
Although an agreement has been signed, Brexit has brought about significant changes to which we must adapt.
The Withdrawal Agreement provides specific provisions for British nationals settled in France before December 31, 2020. In most cases, you will retain your rights acquired before this date and continue to benefit from social security coordination mechanisms. The agreement of December 30, 2020 does not modify these provisions in any way.
If you wish to settle, you are not covered by the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement and the steps to be taken are different. The Trade and Partnership Agreement provides for social security coordination in certain areas.
You are concerned if you are a British citizen working in France or wishing to work in France; if you receive family benefits; if you are insured under the French plan or the British plan; if your spouse works or is unemployed in France or the United Kingdom; if you only receive a British pension; if you are a British student in France.
