Petition Give 500,000 UK overseas State Pensioners with frozen pensions parity
Approximately 500,000 of 1.2 million state pension recipients living abroad do not receive increases to their state pension in the same way as other state pension recipients. We want the state pensions of these individuals to be increased to current rates, and to receive annual increases in future.
We believe the need for reciprocal social security agreements has long passed as other countries already pay their pensioners in the UK annual increases. We believe the freezing of UK citizens pensioners is discriminatory, unjust and immoral.
