Give U.K. pensioners living abroad increases with parity as those in the U.K.
Give all the U.K. citizens living abroad, who have paid the necessary National Insurance Contributions, the right to receive the same State Pension payments as those resident in the U.K.
U.K. citizens living abroad do not receive annual increase in pension payments. This is entirely unjust!
Why should we not get equal rights?
Pensioners living abroad are less of a strain on the National Health (not using the services of G.Ps., emergency services etc.), in the vast majority of cases having to fund health care including care homes privately.
Pensioners living abroad do NOT receive a Winter Fuel Payment, do NOT receive discounted travel on public transport (a bus pass).
Yet we are still penalized!
It is only fair that the Government treats all it’s citizens on an equal basis!
