Addressing what may happen if there was a deal, it stated: “While the EU’s proposals would broadly speaking mean the continuation of the existing coordination rules (though applying to certain limited groups only), the UK’s draft agreement does not cover cash benefits beyond state pensions.
“The UK’s draft text also does not include provisions on reimbursement of healthcare costs for pensioners receiving an exported State Pension.”
The UK formally left the EU on Friday January 31, 2020, with the Withdrawal Agreement providing a transition period lasting until December 31, 2020.
The UK Government confirmed no changes to state pensions for UK nationals living in a European Economic Area (EEA) state or Switzerland would take place before December 31, 2020.
Those intending to move to an EEA state or Switzerland from January 1, 2021 have so far been directed to continue checking the government website as the rules would depend on the outcome of negotiations with the EU.
