DV v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions

Social security – Child benefit. The Upper Tribunal (Administrative Appeals Chamber) dismissed the appellant's appeal against the decision of the First-tier Tribunal (the FTT), finding that her self-employment selling the Big Issue was neither genuine nor effective and it did not give rise to a right of residence for the purposes of entitlement to child benefit. It had been unexceptional to consider the appellant's state benefits and the FTT had not treated the low level of remuneration as determinative.
