Pensions for Ex-Pats living in Spain and Brexit
There has been an agreement for all British pensioners who live in the EU will continue to see their state pension payments increased each year after Brexit, the Government has indicated.
There had been fears that millions of expats who live in Europe would see their pensions “frozen”, meaning their value would be steadily eroded over time. This is the situation in countries such as Canada, Australia and New Zealand, where British state pension payments to expats are not increased each year in line with inflation.
But an official update, published quietly last month, confirms that the British government intends to continue increasing state pensions to expats in the EU after the UK leaves the EU in 2019. The update showed that Britain and the EU had the same position on annual increases: that they would continue to be made as now after Brexit. (The Telegraph 13 Sept.)
Brexit healthcare deal is ‘good news for pensioners’
Brexit negotiators have agreed to maintain reciprocal healthcare for British and EU retirees affected by Brexit
The deal applies to British retirees living in other EU countries, and people from those states who have retired in the UK. British pensioners who have retired to other EU countries will continue to have their healthcare paid for by the NHS post-Brexit, after a deal in principle was agreed by negotiators in Brussels.
In one of the few advances made in discussions about EU citizens’ future rights, the Brexit secretary, David Davis, said there had been agreement on four key areas, including reciprocal healthcare for British and EU retirees affected by Brexit.
“This is good news for British pensioners in the EU,” he said.
Other areas of agreement included protection for “frontier workers”, those who live in one EU member state and work in another. This would include people who live in the UK and commute to Europe, or Britons settled in one country, for example Germany, who commute to work in another, say Luxembourg. (The Telegraph 13 Sept)
