British National Insurance and Brexit

Hello

I’d like to find out what happens to National Insurance once you’ve moved to Portugal as a resident and Brexit happens. Does it get transferred over (if so, how?) or does it just stay where it is and we just claim it at retirement age? I’ve not been able to find any information on this.

Thanks for any ideas, advice.

Tom

I am not certain, but I would guess that it would await your retirement and then become available. I don´t believe it can be transferred here.

Guessing you are talking about state pension from the UK?

Theres nothing to "transfer" as such.

Once you are eligible for UK state pension (assuming you have enough contributions made) then you need to contact the UK pensions service to arrange payment.

 

www.gov.uk/state-pension-if-you-retire-abroad

 

is a good place to start.
