Expatriates’ pensions should be an issue in the forthcoming general election, a group of campaigners has argued.
Of the 1.1 million British expats who are entitled to claim UK pensions, 540,000 cannot draw the full amount because of rules surrounding pensions being fixed at a flat rate, the Daily Express has reported.
Most expats living in all EU countries and 15 others including Bermuda and the United States have their pension index linked to their country of residence.
However, expatriates in 150 other countries have had their pensions fixed to the rate at which they were first drawn, meaning some British expats are struggling to survive on £6 a week, the paper said.
Campaigner John Markham, 76, from the Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners said the expat vote in the upcoming general election would be much higher than in the last.
"We want to get Britons living abroad to vote, but only for the parties that support our cause," he said.
Expats are advised to check they are covered under their overseas health insurance as it could help avoid being landed with costly medical bills or expensive hospital treatment.
