Has anyone heard about a ruling made in February affecting exportable disability benefits and S1?
Our daughter’s enhanced daily living component has been exported to France, which is good news, I think? The dwp have told us they are confident this will entitle her to receive an S1, but due to a ruling made in February, they’re waiting on guidelines before issuing it! It’s making its way through their system as it was with the policy team and is now with the legal team to make the decision. But I can’t find anything to shed light on what on earth happened to cause the confusion in the first place?
If she does get an S1 does this mean we don’t need to wait for 3 months before visiting cpam to get her carte vitale application started?
We only arrived permanently in France 5 weeks ago. My husband and I are both registered as micro entrepreneurs and will both also receive a salaire in France from a uk company (the application to register as an overseas employer in France is in progress) so we will both be paying cotisations, though mine is a lower salary as I also care full time for our daughter. Although she’s 18 will we be able to add her to our carte vitale applications which I believe we can make once we receive our first French payslip? This is just in case the dwp is still deciding what to do this time next year! She has profound disabilities and will meet the criteria to register as over 80% handicappe/invalide.
