British Pensions in Australia

UK Age Pension in Australia

Information about receiving the British aged pension while resident in Australia.

People who have paid UK National Insurance contributions, but retire in Australia, or any other country, are eligible to receive the British Age Pension, even when living overseas.

UK Income Tax would not be deducted on the UK Pension, but the Australian Tax office would include that income, with any other Income, for the calculation of Australian Tax.

It is however important to note that the rate of pension will be frozen at the same amount that it is first paid out at.  This does not apply to those living in all countries, but Australia is one where it does apply.
