PENSIONS PETITIONS

15 April 2012

 

I want to see pension parity for all expat British pensioners, regardless of where they live.

Why this is important

 

More than half-a-million expat British pensioners living in 49 countries around the world, including British Commonwealth nations, are denied parity in basic pension payments granted to pensioners living in every other part of the world. Their pensions are "frozen" at the same amount received on the first payment. As an example of this disparity an expat pensioner living in Canada will have his pension frozen. If he lived across the border in USA he would enjoy yearly incremental increases. If people presently living in the UK are planning to spend their pension years with family in foreign lands such as Australia, New Zealand or South Africa for example, need to be made aware of the discriminatory actions to be taken against them, should be advised to pressure their local MPs to protect the intended benefits of their future pensions. Discrimination against selective pensioners, who, like all other British taxpayers contributed to social security, is indefensible and should be challenged as vigorously as possible. Pensions Minister Steve Webb opposed this discrimination while he was in opposition to the Labour Party must be taken to task for his unacceptable turn-about now that he is empowered to do the honourable thing but is refusing to do so.

The International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP) has sponsored the following petition on the UK Government’s DirectGov website:

 

END THE UNFAIR FROZEN OVERSEAS PENSION POLICY

 

Under regulation 3 of the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Regulations British pensioners who retire to any one of over 120 countries, mainly in the Commonwealth, have their rightful state pension frozen. Meanwhile, those who retire to other countries have their pension uprated annually, just as though they never left the UK. This discriminatory policy currently impacts on the lives of over half a million British pensioners and curtails the freedom of choice of all British pensioners in retirement. We call for this Government to heed the plea of the International Consortium of British Pensioners to repeal this Regulation.

 

More than 100,000 signatures are required so that this very important topic, which impacts not only on current pensioners but also those future British pensioners who may wish to retire overseas, in order that it may be considered for debate in the House of Commons.

 

We would ask you to sign and also request your relatives and friends also to sign.
