British Pensions in Australia (BPiA) fights for the rights of many thousands of British expat pensioner members.

  • BPiA represents Australian resident UK state pensioners who have paid into the mandatory UK National Insurance scheme in their working lives.
  • BPiA's primary mission is to force the UK Government to treat us fairly, equally and without discrimination, by recognising our right to parity with UK and many other international pensioners and annually indexing the UK pension to which we are entitled. See Pension Policies & Judgments for a full background explanation
  • BPiA will also help anyone who has worked in the UK discover the UK pension to which they may be entitled and help them with their application for this potential worthwhile retirement income.  See UK Pensions and You for all you need to get started and to download UK State Pension application forms.
  • BPiA is an incorporated non profit volunteer association and a founder member of the International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP)

New petition extends the campaign potentially to many more pensioners

We are already hearing rumblings about the fate of the 492,000 British pensioners living in the EU when Brexit finally takes effect.  It could be that they will all lose the annual indexation which membership of the EU guarantees unless there are specific provisions made in the Brexit negotiations.  A 'hard' Brexit could see no such provisions being considered, let alone implemented.  Please sign this petition (sponsored by ICBP) to make the case not just for the EU pensioners but on behalf of all disadvantaged UK pensioners.
