EAA Form E301 (U1) - Do I need to have it?

Hi all,
another question I couldn't get a straight answer to - do I need to have the form U1 if don't want to claim any benefits in Malta (i.e. I'll be working from day 1)? Or more like has anyone bothered to obtain it?


what is a U1 form

You can get one from this url: or just search CA3916.

Hi,if you do not what to claim your UK benefits in Malta then you do not need the U documents. As you will  be working from day 1 you will not be eligible anyway.

I thought I wouldn't need it but still wanted to be sure (it's quite tricky to get it, so one less worry).
Thanks Pevi!
