Retirement abroad. Fighting for pensioners whose British Pensions in Australia are frozen

  Are YOU shivering ?  500,000 of us are, financially, with frozen pensions

 Yes.  Over 500,000 British pensioners who have contributed to the National Insurance Fund for most of their working lives have had their pensions frozen from the date of their emigrating to one of the old Commonwealth countries.  Australia is particularly hard hit with about 250,000 frozen pensioners.

Meanwhile another half million have been permitted to retain their full entitlements, should they choose to retire to Europe or the USA. Those who go to Europe  get Christmas bonuses and some even get winter fuel allowances.

Two of our members, husband & wife, were deprived of over 60,000 since retiring and moving to Australia in 1986.

BAPA has been fighting for the rights of Frozen Pensioners for over 25 years

The British Age Pensioner Alliance, successor to the British Australian Pensioner Association, has two main objectives.

1. primarily to secure the cost of living indexation of the United Kingdom Department of Work and Pensions age pensions paid to residents of Australia and other "frozen countries".

2. secondarily to render advice and assistance to British expatriates in Australia and elsewhere regarding UK pension matters.
