The following Immigration precedent provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
I am pleased to enclose a letter from the Home Office which confirms that you [and your [wife OR husband OR partner]] [and your children] have been granted indefinite leave to remain (ILR) in the UK. You are now treated as having settled status. It is important that you keep this letter in a safe place. I also enclose a Home Office leaflet which explains your new immigration status. You will shortly receive a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) [for each of you] which confirms your new immigration status.
Please ensure that you show your original passport and BRP to your UK employer as soon as possible, and preferably on the first working day after you receive the BRP. They must check and take a copy of both documents in order to satisfy themselves of your continuing right to work in the UK.
Note that while the information below is correct as at today's date, UK immigration and nationality law is subject to regular change.
The main consequences of having indefinite leave are:
you no longer have any time restrictions on your stay here
you are able to work for any employer in any profession and/or set up a business without restriction
you are able to study any type of course without restriction
[you are no longer required to register any change of immigration
