The Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners is a not for profit organization, staffed by volunteers. Our mission is to help people discover and apply for the UK State pension they are entitled to, and to lobby the UK Government to end the discriminatory practice of freezing pensions based solely on country of residence.

Do you receive a UK State pension ?

Then you already know what the problem is. If you live in Canada, your UK State pension is frozen from the day you first collect it in Canada. You will never receive another increase as long as you stay in Canada, yet if you lived in the US, you would receive annual inflation increases – just as if you lived in the UK. This is unfair and discriminatory. The Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners is working hard to convince the UK Government to treat all pensioners living abroad equally. Please join us and help us with the fight. The more members we have the stronger our voice is. For more information on how you can join up, click here

Ever worked in the UK ?

If you ever worked in the U.K., even for as little as 1 year, you may be eligible for a partial state pension. You do not need to be a UK citizen, only to have worked there at some period in time. You can also increase that pension by making voluntary contributions from abroad. You can even buy back some years, in certain circumstances. We have helped many people receive a pension that they had no idea they were entitled to. Don’t delay in signing up, as you lose the ability to buy back years as time goes by.
