A House of Commons briefing paper confirms that the UK’s plans to leave the EU could affect state pensions for the internationally mobile. At present, there are reciprocal rules for building up state pension entitlement and for increases to pensions in payment across the EU plus the EEA and Switzerland. It’s not yet possible to say what, if anything, will change– this will depend on the outcome of the EU exit negotiations.
There’s a summary of the briefing paper here which includes a link to the full document.
