To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the Government guidance entitled How the automated check calculates the period of residence, for what reason caseworkers are not shown information about an applicant's employment, pension or benefits.

The automated checks conducted where an applicant under the EU Settlement Scheme chooses to provide their National Insurance number have been designed to make the application process as quick and straightforward as possible. They greatly reduce the need for applicants to upload documentary evidence of their residence in the UK.

Caseworkers are not shown information from the checks about an applicant's employment, pension or benefits as this is not relevant to their eligibility for status under the scheme, which is generally based on continuous UK residence.
