UK STATE PENSION SERVICE
Even living in Australia, or in fact anywhere in the world, if you have worked in the UK (you can be of any nationality) and paid NI contributions for at least three years you can still make voluntary contributions into the UK’s (heavily subsidised) Pension Scheme to increase any entitlements you already achieved before you left the UK. These voluntary contributions may cost as little as $280 Australian a year, under class 2. Therefore, you can increase your UK Pension to your desired income level simply and very cost-effectively.
Here is an example case of how voluntary contributions work...
Mary is 45 years of age, she worked in the UK for 15 years and paid her National Insurance Contributions. She moved overseas and has now settled in Australia. To receive a full UK pension, she would require 35 years of working credits.
15 Years working in the UK: 15 CREDITS.
Mary qualified to pay voluntary class 2 contributions of 8 years, a lump sum investment of £1,200 which can be paid in instalments: 8 CREDITS.
Mary still has 12 years to go before reaching pension age and she now qualifies to make 12 annual payments of £150: 12 CREDITS.
Mary now has a total of 35 credits which gives her a full state pension of £9,300 per year for the rest of her life.
UK Pension Transfers Australia will provide you with a free report and show how it may be possible for you to achieve a similar outcome using our recommendations before the rules on Voluntary Contributions change and make it more expensive to achieve. UK Pensions Australia was established in 2003 and we have 18 years of experience in the State Pension Service field.
REMEMBER HMRC HAVE ALREADY ANNOUNCED THAT THE LOWER COST CLASS 2 VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS ARE TO BE ABOLISHED SOON.
Truly (in this case) there is no time like the present to consider your income at retirement age, especially with the heavily subsidised voluntary contribution system available. It really is too good to miss out on especially if you live overseas. As it is widely expected that the voluntary contributions system will be scrapped altogether and as the minimum requirement to be entitled to at least a part pension is 10 years, therefore if you have 8 or 9 years contributions from working in the UK you will miss out if you don’t purchase the one or two years extra you require to get to 10 years for your Part State Pension.
So, avoid missing out and apply for your free report, NOW! Email: email@example.com or visit our contact page.
ARE VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT?
Applications for Voluntary Contributions should be done A.S.A.P. as these are heavily subsidised by the UK Government who are looking to cut costs and have announced for example that the cheaper class 2 voluntary contributions option is to be abolished, leaving only the more expensive class 3 option. There are even whispers of the Voluntary Contribution system being scrapped altogether. This is according one of the UK’s top Pension companies “Royal London” Steve Webb, a director at Royal London, the pension firm, said:
"The price of topping up your state pension continues to be heavily subsidised. As a result, there is a risk that a cash-strapped government will pull the plug on this scheme at short notice. "For those who can benefit from this scheme, it is well worth considering filling gaps in your pension record for each year as soon as it becomes possible to do so."
