star this property answer text <p>In the period up to 31 May 2019, the last point at which data was assured, 368 applications were received for administrative review of decisions made on applications under the EU Settlement Scheme. Of these:</p><p>• 30 administrative review applications were rejected, e.g. because no EU Settlement Scheme application had been received;</p><p>• in all the remaining 253 cases, the applicant was challenging a grant of pre-settled status rather than settled status, of which:</p><p>o 22 of these grants of pre-settled status were upheld following the administrative review; and <br>o 231 of these grants of pre-settled status were overturned, and the applicant was instead granted settled status following administrative review. In these cases, the applicant had generally accepted a grant of pre-settled status when making their application and then provided additional evidence of their eligibility for settled status with their application for administrative review.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Under the EU Settlement Scheme, we conduct automated checks of certain tax and benefits records held by HM Revenue &amp; Customs and the Department for Work and Pensions, where the applicant chooses to provide their National Insurance number. The checks help to provide evidence of the applicant’s residence in the UK and remove or reduce the need for them to submit documentary evidence of this.</p><p>The business logic of how the checks calculate the period of residence is available on gov.uk at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/eu-settlement-scheme-uk-tax-and-benefits-records-automated-check" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/eu-settlement-scheme-uk-tax-and-benefits-records-automated-check</a></p><p>We have also published there the memorandum of understanding with each department, reasons why records may not be found, and guidance on the wide range of other evidence we can use to confirm UK residence.</p><p>All applications under the scheme are decided by a caseworker.</p>

Additionally, to help meet demand for the autumn increase in student applications a “Tier 4 Service Point” will also be offered by Sopra Steria for a fee. This cost of this is lower than the costs of an out of hours, enhanced service point or premium lounge appointments under the normal UKVCAS service and will save students the financial and logistical burden of travel.</p><p>As part of our governance processes, we work closely with SSL to ensure that excessive charges are not imposed on UKVI customers. Whilst SSL may offer added value services to customers, these are optional and aim to enhance the customer experience.</p>
