Access your pension from the UK government
Have you ever worked in the UK? Have you contributed to the UK National Insurance for at least 10 years? If so, you probably qualify for a UK state pension and Holborn Assets can help you access it.
A UK state pension offers a regular income from the government once you reach State Pension age, which is currently under review but was 65 until 2018. You can receive this pension in the UK or abroad, and the amount will depend on how many “qualifying” years you have built up. You stand to receive a basic pension if you have contributed for 10 years and to receive the full amount you need to have made full contributions for a minimum of 35 years.
Outside of South Africa, there are a number of other options in internationally recognised and investment grade jurisdictions. You may feel safer knowing that your trust assets reside in a jurisdiction that offers government-backed investor protection, so you know your money is safe.
Holborn Assets has been helping customers draw their UK state pensions for many years and thus has the expertise to help you claim your UK state pension. Talk to us, and we’ll help you through the process.
