      Benefits and pensions for UK nationals in the EU, EEA

      Benefits and pensions for UK nationals in the EU, EEA or Switzerland if there’s a no-deal Brexit

      Updated the guidance with information about State Pension uprating in April 2020, April 2021 and April 2022 if you live in an EEA state or Switzerland.

      UK pensions and benefits

      The UK leaving the EU will not affect your entitlement to continue receiving your UK State Pension if you live in an EEA state or Switzerland.

      The UK leaving the EU will also not affect the uprating of your UK State Pension in April 2020, April 2021 and April 2022 if you live in an EEA state or Switzerland.

      You will carry on receiving other UK benefits you already receive while you are living in an EEA state or Switzerland, as long as you continue to meet the eligibility criteria.

      Pensions and benefits paid by an EEA state or Switzerland

      If you are paid a pension or benefit by an EEA state or Switzerland, check with the organisation that pays you to find out what will happen after Brexit.

      Annuities and personal pensions from a UK pension provider

      Your pension provider should have made plans to make sure you can still get payments from your annuity or personal pension after Brexit.

      Your pension provider should contact you if they need to make changes to your annuity or pension or the way you are paid after Brexit.

      If you have any questions, contact your pension provider.

      UK workplace pensions

      UK law allows for workplace pensions to be paid overseas. The government does not expect this to change after Brexit.

      If you have any questions, contact your pension provider.

      If your workplace pension is paid into a UK bank account, your bank should contact you if they need to change the way you receive your pension after Brexit.
