What does Brexit mean for UK citizens in the EU?

For the majority of UK citizens residing in the EU on the date that the UK leaves, their rights will largely, but not entirely, continue as before, including for work, healthcare, pensions, social welfare, family rights and travel. Individual Member States will have to set up their own administrative procedures to allow this. If a UK citizen leaves a territory for more than five years, their residency rights may be removed, but states are not obliged to do this.
