Re: Applying for British State Pension Questions

Other than finding out my SIN had been deactivated I didn't have any issues on the Canadian side. I had been warned though to start as soon as possible since I'd been out of the country so long, so...

Re: Contracted-Out & State Pension

Re: Contracted-Out & State Pension

Bats,
where is the link to opted-out pensions? Is that only if you can see your forecast online? I did a search on gov.uk but it didn't come up with anything that I hadn't already read.

Re: Contracted-Out & State Pension

Thanks for that feedback Bats. Yes, I've fallen into the age for women changes, as well, although I do kind of agree there shouldn't be a difference in the ages. But, every time you think you...

Re: Contracted-Out & State Pension

It seems the online pension forecast only works for those of you still using a UK address or have a UK passport. My passport is Canadian. Now have to wait for snail mail to get an updated forecast.

Re: Contracted-Out & State Pension

You mean it was reduced by 89 pounds a week? Yikes!

Re: Contracted-Out & State Pension

Contracted-Out & State Pension

Does anyone have any experience yet of how being contracted-out has affected their State Pension? I can't seem to figure out how much this will affect my pension.

Re: Contributing to the UK state Pension whilst living over seas? time limit?

I've just tried again but it still wants a UK address from me. Maybe because I don't have a UK passport. Guess I will have to call them again tomorrow to re-figure out what I have to pay and more...

Re: Looking for QROPS personal finance expert

For those of us that are way over 55 can we start withdrawing from our QROPS RRSP? I'm going to need to in the next couple of years.
