State Retirement Pensions: British Nationals Abroad

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN HL14018, tabled on 25 February 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of a no-deal Brexit on UK pension claimants living in EU countries.

Answered on

8 March 2019

As the Government set out in its Policy Paper ‘Citizens’ Rights – EU citizens in the UK and UK Nationals in the EU’ we wish to secure continued reciprocal arrangements covering the up-rating of State Pensions even in the event of a no deal exit. UK State Pensions will be uprated, as they are currently, for those recipients living in EU countries for 2019/2020.
