When Should I Apply for my UK State Pension?
You are notified by post 6 weeks before your state retirement age and must make a paper application by return.
On receipt of your application it will be processed and paid to you.
If there is a delay in processing, post or payment of state pension then you will receive pension payment backdated.
Expats can pay the pension to any bank account in the UK or around the world. It will be taxed in the UK unless you register it under a Double Taxation treaty to be paid gross in the UK and taxed overseas.
We have prepared a free sample of the letter to elect to keep you pension taxed under the old rules.
