The appellant, an EU national, made a claim for Child Benefit in December 2017 in respect of her daughter who came to Ireland to live with her in September 2017. Supporting documentation was provided, including a statement from the school secretary, indicating that the child was enrolled in school since September 2017 and was attending school at present. The claim was disallowed in January 2018 on the grounds that the appellant was not habitually resident in the State. The decision was appealed and the appellant submitted details of her employment, which had commenced in March 2018. On foot of this evidence the department made a revised decision and awarded Child Benefit from March 2018. The appellant was held to have migrant worker status, as she had become employed, and was not required to satisfy the habitual residence condition while she remained in employment.
