State Retirement Pensions: Windrush Generation

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN 41026, tabled on 18 August 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of the Government’s frozen pensions policy on members of the Windrush generation.

Answered on

8 September 2021

The policy on up-rating UK state pensions overseas is a long-standing one of successive post-war Governments. The UK State Pension is payable worldwide and is up-rated where there is a legal requirement to do so. There are no plans to change this.

No assessment has been made.
