European Union – Social security. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding, among other things, that art 60(1), second sentence, of Regulation (EC) No 987/2009 had to be interpreted as meaning that the deeming provision included there could lead to the grant of entitlement to family benefits to a person who did not reside in the member state responsible for paying those benefits, where all the other conditions for the grant of those benefits laid down by national law were met, a matter which was for the referring court to determine.
