BPiA is an incorporated non profit volunteer association and a founder member of the International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP)



BPiA represents Australian resident UK state pensioners who have paid into the mandatory UK National Insurance scheme in their working lives.

'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 FAQ for all you need to get started and to download UK State Pension application forms.

Contrasting responses from Australian Government

Award-winning journalist, Shelley Gare, writes a blog for The Sydney Institute. One of her recent articles highlights the differing responses of the Prime Minister, on one hand, and the Foreign Minister to challenging the UK Government on the issue of frozen pensions. (see News & Reports/Pensions in the Media)

See also Sir Richard Branson's blog in which he strongly supports our case, and the latest article in The Guardian.
