Issued on behalf of British Age Pensioner Alliance, these Fact Sheets support the 20 year story of the fight for PARITY by 540,500 UK State Pensioners.  Why should they be deprived of annual indexation of their pensions because they live in certain countries while another 565,000,living in other countries, are not ?

Fact: On Remembrance Day on 11 November each year tribute is paid to the many service personnel who gave their lives for Britain.

These servicemen who gave their lives came from various parts of Britain and from countries such as Australia and Canada.

Many survivors and relatives worked in the UK, paying contributions into the National Insurance Scheme.

Some of these people made a decision to emigrate, many to join their families overseas.

Most of these people would not have  been aware that in leaving the UK the Government would not uprate their state pensions each year.

They would not have been aware that if they migrated to the USA or Israel they would receive increases but if to Australia or Canada they would not.

The payment of state pension uprating should be standardised regardless of country of residence of the former N.I. Contributor.
