International Consortium of British Pensioners - Chair: John Duffy

APPG on Frozen British Pensions  Chair: Sir Roger Gale, MP

“Bringing together parliamentary supporters of the case to unfreeze British state pensions overseas and to campaign for reform.”

BCPA, BPiA, the CABP, the ICBP and the APPG believe that all UK state pensioners – no matter where they choose to retire overseas – ought to be paid the pension that they have contributed towards and are rightfully entitled to receive. Help us fight this battle as every voice helps!
