Ensure all ex-pats receive their full indexed pension

Comment 9th August 2010

Brits who have paid the mandatory NI pension contributions are being cheated if they move to certain countries…specifically some Commonwealth countries. Their pensions are FROZEN at the amount they first receive. This is outright robbery. These people have paid the exact same amount as all other Brits and yet are being robbed of what is rightfully theirs. For instance, those who emigrate to Canada or Australia have their pensions frozen. While those who move to the USA do not. This is outrageous and goes against all Human Rights.

It's time the new Government did the RIGHT and MORAL thing and righted this wrong.

Why does this matter?

This is crucial as ex-pats who have moved to certain countries are receiving only a fraction of what they are due. And many of them are living in poverty because of this. Perhaps they relocated to join their children or other relatives rather than be alone and old in Britain…..and they are being punished by the British Government for doing so.

It is morally WRONG and the British Government should be ashamed.
