What benefits have you claimed in the past two years please?
Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
An EEA national may apply for permanent residence after 5 years exercising treaty rights. Usually you can meet this by working but you can also meet it where you have been “self-sufficient” which effectively means where you are not working but have not claimed excessive benefits.
If you have only claiming child tax credits and child benefit then I would expect that you would still be okay and receive PR after you apply for confirmation of it, especially if you are able to demonstrate that you worked for 7 years up to the recent period where you have been a mother at home.
You can apply using the links on the following page:
