550,000 UK State pensioners have their UK State Pension frozen.
The International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP) represents 550,000 British pensioners, who are being denied their rightful Pension Rights by the British Government because of where they have chosen to live. The British Government is the only Government in the OECD to treat its pensioners in such an appalling, unfair and selective manner.
These 550,000 pensioners represent just under half of all the UK’s expat pensioners. Another 640,000 UK expats live in the EEA or 16 other countries all of which have Pension Reciprocal Agreements with the UK. Because of these agreements these UK expats receive an annual up-rating of their UK pensions as if they were still residing in the UK.
All 1.2 million recipients of the UK State Pension will have worked in the UK and had mandatory National Insurance contributions deducted from their pay slips. The fact that just 550,000 expats have their pensions immorally frozen is a blatant discrimination of the worst kind.
ICBP is an umbrella organization comprising British Pensions in Australia [BPiA] and the Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners [CABP]. Both of these non-profit organizations have members from all over the world who have subscribed to join ICBP’s campaign to achieve a change to the UK’s pension policy.
Both organisations are dedicated to persuading the UK Government to overturn its flawed pension policy and to treat its pensioners in the same fair, moral and equal manner as do all the other OECD nations.
