Pensions

If a withdrawal agreement were to be adopted, a transition period up to 31 December 2020 would ensure the same rights and obligations as currently effective legislation. If there is no withdrawal agreement, France and the UK will each apply their own national rules, and EU rules on coordination of social security systems will no longer apply between the two countries.


You are concerned if you are a British citizen living in France and you want your periods of employment and contribution to be taken into account to calculate your pension entitlement.
