PENSIONS

This is a stub to be developed. I should be most grateful for any comments or corrections.

 

If a person from the UK who is or would later be entitled to a UK State pension moves abroad, the level of their pension is frozen at its amount on the date of expatriation, unless they move to a country with which the UK has a "reciprocal agreement" which allows for annual increases as if the person concerned had remained in the UK. Currently (September 2011) the countries concerned are the EU and EEA member states, Switzerland and Gibraltar, Barbados, Bermuda, Israel, Jamaica, Jersey and Guernsey, Mauritius, the Philippines, the Republics of the Former Yugoslavia, Turkey and the USA (The Isle of Man is also mentioned but I have not seen how UK State pensions are treated there).

 

Although the UK has social security agreements with Canada and New Zealand, UK state pensions are frozen there as well as in Australia, whose agreement was terminated by Australia and ended on 28 February 2001. They are frozen in all other countries as well.

This iniquitous situation has led UK State pensioners living notably in Canada, Australia and South Africa to lobby very actively in favour of allowing UK State pensions to be paid and increased annually in line with the increases paid in the UK.

 

Please see the web-site of the International Consortium of British Pensioners at

The International Consortium of British Pensioners took their case to the European Court of Human Rights, who inexplicably found against them, but with very significant dissenting opinions, and they are carrying on the fight agaist this absurd and inexcusable injustice - see
