How your pension is affected
Your State Pension will only increase each year if you live in:
- the European Economic Area (EEA)
- countries that have a social security agreement with the UK (but you cannot get increases in Canada or New Zealand)
You will not get yearly increases if you live outside these countries.
Your pension will go up to the current rate if you return to live in the UK.
Contact the International Pension Centre if you want advice on how your pension might be affected if you’ve already retired and are thinking of moving abroad.
