Expat Pension Concerns Cause Dwindling Number of Brits in EU

There are also concerns that British expats will not have their State Pension uprated in the event of a no deal. This is because for this to happen, deals would have to be made on a country-by-country basis and is only possible if host countries reciprocate.

Planning is Everything

Impending probable Brexit and all the uncertainty accompanying it should not be enough to dissuade anyone from emigrating or indeed to prompt expats to return home.

By properly planning their expat pensions, both state and private, expats can ensure that they have contingencies in place.

Although nothing is guaranteed at this stage it is difficult to envisage a situation in which expats in EU member states lose their rights to residency and healthcare.

As ever, decisions about where to reside should be made purely on an individual basis, by weighing up the costs and risks involved and how these align with your ultimate goals. These considerations were important even before Brexit raised its head, so no one should panic yet. But if you believe that you might be looking to relocate back to the UK, it is wise to have an exit plan just in case.

Expats may be required to produce regular savings proof

British expats with regular savings could soon have to make applications for long-term residency visas if they wish to begin living in the European Union following Brexit, according to sources within the Home Office.

Any such move, which would represent something of a victory for hard-line EU negotiators, could see British expats having to provide proof of their regular savings, income and QROPS or QNUPS pensions arrangements.
