I am an EU national and started thinking about naturalization. I heard that one of the criteria is that you must not have claimed benefits for more than 3 months in the last year. If I have, does it mean I'm not eligible?

I meet all other criteria alright. But I've been on benefits. Is that a deal-breaker?

I don't know where you heard this, but it is not one of the eligibility requirements for EU citizens. See pages 14 to 18 of the government's published guidance in the Naturalisation Booklet.

    Watched a youtube video once, hardly a source. I'll read that document. Thank you for the answer. Aug 26 '21 at 11:45
