EEA permanent residence – employment evidence

If you wish to apply for EEA permanent residence as an employee then there are several pieces of evidence that you can provide to prove your employment history in the UK.

One option to consider is to apply for a statement of your National Insurance record. This is completed online and will result in a statement (with your name, National Insurance number etc..) being posted to you. This will detail each “qualifying year” for National Insurance contributions.

This will also state if your annual contributions are Class 1 (employed) or Class 2 (usually self-employed) or a mix of the two.

A National Insurance record is not the only document to provide when applying for EEA permanent residence but it certainly is of benefit.

Remember when applying for permanent residence you need to show that you have been exercising your EU Treaty Rights as an employee for a 5 year period.

Please see this link on applying for a statement of your National Insurance record.
