We are a married retired couple from Scotland who migrated to Queensland on a CPV 18 months ago. Much as we knew the situation about our UK state pensions being frozen I think this is a disgrace - because we moved to Australia and not for example Spain or Florida where we would benefit from annual pension increases. More so having contributed to NI for 47 years. However I guess rules are rules! I have read on this forum that we are entitled to the Australian age pension after 10 years of permanent residency but subject to income and assets assessment. Can this really be true?? Why should Australia help us out when our UK government cannot? In a reverse situation would the UK government consider giving an Australian expat living in the UK, a pension in retirement?
