If that’s correct is that free for him or us both ? (I won’t be eligible at that point)

we have the income to allow us to come and live and we have our apartment to live in.

we definitely need to sit down and consider consequences of leaving it till after December 😳😳😳😳
When he is eligible for his state pension he can request the S1 form and ask for your name to be put on it as his dependent. You are not automatically included so he will have to provide them with your details.

Rosemary, when my husband became eligible for his state pension and applied for S1s for himself and for me as his dependant, I was sent a separate S1 form for myself (which showed that I was the beneficiary of a UK pensioner), rather than my name being added to my husband's S1. I was also advised that once I became eligible to receive my own state pension, I should apply for a new S1 form in my own right.

You will still need to be legally resident in Spain before end of transition to do as Rosemary says. If you move to live in the EU after 31 Dec you won't be able to get an S1. If you are resident before end of transition then you will be entitled to an S1 even if you reach state pension age after transition ends and your wife would be entitled as your dependant. You really need to make a decision one way or another whether to move before or after transition.

Hi Rosemary he is not eligible until June 2025.

When he retires he has a occupational pension and I will have a pension too and I know we need to do a tax return every year as we have done this previously for a few years when we rented our apartment out.

on face of it I think we need to start process now as consequences of not doing it out weigh considerably.

Yes that's how they do it. On one side of your S1 would be your Husbands details as the S1 holder on the other side are your details as his dependant. Your husband would also have his own seperate S1 with just his details on. I believe that once you reach state pension age you apply for your own S1 which you then register in your own name. I believe its a paperwork excercise really as your health card etc stays the same. The main difference is I believe as a dependant should anything happen to your husband (or wife if its a husband dependant of wife) then you only get the free health care for so long, I think it may be 18 months. So better to have an S1 registered in your own name as a pensioner.
