Date published: 19 April 2018

This guidance contains important information for people who are granted:

  • refugee status
  • humanitarian protection status
  • discretionary leave status
  • indefinite leave to remain
  • limited leave to remain

Your asylum support will stop 28 days after you receive your Biometric
Residence Permit (BRP). If you need to claim benefits you must contact
the Department for Communities as soon as you receive this or you may
not get payment of benefits arranged in time.
