Ordinarily Resident - Eligibility for Isle of Man Government Benefits
You will satisfy the Isle of Man (IOM) residential condition for income-related benefits if:
- You were born in the IOM
- You have been ordinarily resident in the IOM for a continuous period of at least 5 years at any time; or
- You have been ordinarily resident in the IOM for a number of periods which, when added together, amount to at least 10 years
You can satisfy the IOM residential condition in other circumstances too, for example if you are married to or are a civil partner of a person who satisfies any of the above.
This is different to the Isle of Man worker definition.
