Spent 2 hours yesterday trying to get through to the DWP International Pension section.
Emailed the following this morning along with links to the gov.uk page showing that
- uprating of state pensions for UK citizens resident in the EEC would continue for 3 years from 2019. But with the ‘Withdrawn on 29/1/20’ addendum.
And a link to the gov.uk page dated 1/2/20 showing that
- uprating would continue if resident in the EEC before the end of 2020.
“ Can you please clarify the position for me. I was told by 2 different people from your department that after the 2022/3 rise UK residency was a requirement for further uprating of state pensions.
Is this the case? Will UK nationals resident in the EEC before the end of 2020 lose annual rises in State Pensions after the 2022/3 increase?
I was also told I could request a copy of the letter. Can it be emailed to me?”
