VIDEO: ILLEGAL MIGRANTS GET MORE BENEFITS THAN PENSIONERS IN THE UK | FACT CHECK

It was found that an image shared online has many false allegations about the benefits that refugees, illegal immigrants and pensioners are allowed to in the United Kingdom.
#UKILLEGALMIGRANTS #UKAMNESTY #UKREFUGEE

The said image comprises text that says: “If they worked for 45 years…BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER’S GET A TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT OF £6,000. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS / REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN GET A TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT OF £29,900”.

We would like to make it clear that this is not true. Illegal immigrants under any circumstances cannot claim benefits in the United Kingdom. An individual is categorised as an illegal immigrant when they do not have the right to remain in the country.

The United Kingdom government, in reaction to a petition pleading it to “Stop all benefits to illegal immigrants completely”, stated in 2015: “Illegal migrants and failed asylum seekers are not allowed to, and do not get, benefits from the United Kingdom’s welfare system”. (Link mentioned below)

Refugees, in contrast, can claim benefits, but no more than any British citizen. Refugees are described as asylum seekers whose asylum application has been successful.

A House of Commons article affirms that they are allowed to “tax credits and social security benefits on the same origin as United Kingdom citizens.” (link mentioned bolow)

But these benefits are in general limited well below £29,900. For example, the maximum amount a single individual residing outside London can obtain in benefits is limited at £13,400 a year, or £15,410 if they reside in London. (Link mentioned bolow).

This increases to £20,000 a year for couples or single parents with children residing outside London, and to £23,000 a year in London.

Even though the benefits restriction does not apply to some individuals, this has nothing to do with refugee status. But, issues like being over state pension age or being paid Universal Credit due to a disability that prevents you from working can make an individual exempted. (Link mentioned below)

The advantages pensioners can be entitled for include a state pension, free bus travel and the means-tested pension credit.

A simple state pension can be demanded by a man who was born before 6 April 1951 or a woman who was born before 6 April 1953. The full basic state pension is £6,981 a year or, £134.25 a week (Link mentioned below).To attain the full basic state pension you will require a total of 30 qualifying years of National Insurance contributions or credits.

Pensioners born after afore mentioned dates can draw the new state pension of up to £9,110 a year , or £175.20 a week. An individual is required to have 35 qualifying years to get the highest rate, but can obtain a share of it if they have between 10 and 35 qualifying years. (Link mentioned below)

The allegation on social media relates to a pensioner who has worked nearly 45 years. Such an individual would apparently be permitted to a full state pension, signifying they would get a minimum of £6,981, as well as any other advantages they may be entitled for.

CONCLUSION
The fact mentioned in the picture circulated on social media is completely false. Illegal immigrants cannot get benefits in the United Kingdom. While refugees are entitled to the similar advantages as United Kingdom citizens, these are limited far below £29,900. A pensioner who has worked for 45 years will be allowed to a minimum of £6,981 a year.
