Hi - Just wondering if anyone knows how you can check how long a person has been in the UK on pre settled status please?
I assumed when you went into the screen with the sharing code it would be detailed within but sadly not
No one has replied to this post.
It _implies_ less than 5 years, or they'd have Settled, but that's it.
I'm saying it's self-dec, just like it would be for a UK learner? There's nothing in the Rules to say we *can't* use self-dec for it...

Thank you Steve - I did think about self dec we use it for other things but wasn't sure on the residency

Hi Martin (I mean Steve😁),
I wish my colleague would agree with you on the self declaration for EU nationals, we've been asked to ask learners for actual evidence to prove they've been resident. I think we are anxious due to it being a new rule and our auditors wont advise us what is the right approach to take.
