Default Italian/EU Citizen UK questions

Hi all,

This is a great forum with good advice. I am a US/Italian Citizen currently living in the USA. I have never worked in the EU/UK but have worked overseas (australia). Currently looking at jobs in the UK

Anyways my questions:

- Im interested on how my Italian citizenship can get me healthcare (NHS) in the UK. I have never lived in Italy nor paid Taxes, just a citizen through my mother.

- How do I obtain an EU healthcard?

- What if I become jobless in the UK? Would the Italian govt cover my unemployment? I havent paid into the system.

Thanks in advance. Ive never used my EU citizenship, but need to develop my career in the EU. All good advice welcome

NHS is available to all residents without having made contributions. This is where it differs from the usual insurance-based scheme in other EU countries.

Having established residence and being in work, you can apply online through NHS.

As stated, Italian government won't help as you haven't contributed there. After being in work in UK and having paid enough Class 1 contributions (automatically deducted from pay), you will be eligible for contribution-based jobseekers allowance (JSA).
