This briefing looks at how Scotland’s devolved benefits are treated in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. It is the last of three briefings on Brexit and devolved social security.
The briefing outlines key features of social security coordination in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement for future movers. It presents tables to show how the Agreement applies to Scotland’s devolved benefits. Two case studies of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) illustrate the coordinating principles of aggregation and export. The briefing highlights the gaps in social security coverage for future movers between Scotland and the European Union (EU).
