    Foreign national on spouse visa - "not entitled to benefits"? 20th Mar 07 at 9:47 AM
    In my wife's settlement clearance in her passport, there is a note about not being entitled to benefits here. There wasn't any supporting documentation or anything with it to give more detail.

    Does anyone know how far-reaching this is? We've already established that NHS clinics would see her and give her prescriptions etc without charge.

    What I am now thinking towards is more like child benefit, and the range of benefits a couple might receive when having a baby. Does anyone know whether we'll lose out on these? I am a regular-type UK citizen myself.
