You can stop looking for a job from 11 weeks before your baby is born. You can then maintain your worker status for up to 1 year (52 weeks) if you have stopped looking for work. If you are from the EU or the European Economic Area (EEA) and wish to receive certain benefits in the UK, you must have a regulated status or a `right of residence`. The EEA includes EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. You can also benefit from benefits if you are from Switzerland. The Authority and the European Commission inform each year of the joint committee established by the withdrawal agreement of the measures taken to implement and enforce the rights of citizens within the framework of the agreement.

You should apply for a „prepayment status“ – if you have it, you can benefit from certain benefits. All you have to do is show that you have some kind of right of residence. Some types of residence rights give you more rights than others – for example, you can receive more benefits when you work than if you are a job seeker.
