Mission Statement

BPiA’s objective is to obtain Fair Play for British Pensions in Australia.

Issue

The British Government freezes the rate of British State Pension paid to residents of Australia ruling when it was first paid to the pensioner if they reached State Pension Age whilst living in Australia.

The British Government freezes the rate of British State Pension paid to residents of Australia at the rate ruling when they first arrived in Australia for pensioners who reached State Pension Age before they emigrated to or returned to Australia.

This discriminatory treatment is arbitrary and unfair.

BPiA partners with the Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners (“CABP”) through the International Consortium of British Pensioners (“ICBP”) to have the policy changed.

ICBP employs a London PR Agency (Tendo Consulting) to lobby Westminster MPs and to raise awareness of the unjust frozen pension policy.
