Re: UK state pension and USA social security

Thanks for clarifying that.

BTW please do not take some of my comments too seriously; assuming that you are of British origin I trust you can remember that Brits have a trait which I often found...

Re: UK state pension and USA social security

I would check directly with the Federal Benefits Team at the US Embassy. From what I understand, and you may not wish to ask the US Embassy team this cheeky question, if you can afford to delay your...

Re: UK state pension and USA social security

Re: UK state pension and USA social security

Thanks. TBH I am still totally confused. My SS contributions gave me 12 credits which is NOT enough for a pension in their own right. The credits were based on income before 1995. So I presume the...

Re: UK state pension and USA social security

The plot thickens. The link appears to state that any retirement based on SS based income before 1995, as is my case, has no WEP deduction. This may be become more intriguing than my day job !

Re: UK state pension and USA social security
