  1. Hi my dad is 66. He has 8 years NI credits. If he purchases 2 years worth of credits (about 1500 pounds) he will be eligible for the minimum new state pension. Does anyone here know if he would be eligible for the 12 month back payment ? or how we could find out ?

    'trivial commutation and aged pension

    Thanks My dad left ther UK at 23. (and is turning 66 in a few weeks) and has been working in Australia over 35 years. Centrelink is still processing the agen pension applciation (showing the expcted completetion date as his birthday). Do think even in these circumstances, he is eligible for anything from England We thoughht that he would not be eligible for the UK state pension, but ill try to investigate this. Hi cancer diagnossi means he most likely wont even be alive when his 2020 tax reurn is lodged in Australia (inApril 2021) His UK private pension lump sum is about 14k pounds. My reading leads me t o it being taxed at 25 percent, but i dont very much understand everything I read
  3. My dad is a n Australian permanent resident from the UK. He is just about to go on the Australian aged pension. He wants to receive his private UK pension as a lump sum via'trivial commutation'as he has been recently diagnosed with cancer. On the form from the British fund, it asks if he will be" in receipt of another form of income as well as this". As he will be on the Australian aged pension, will i tick yes on this? Also would anyone here know how the uk pension lump sum will be taxed in Australia?
