Can anyone on here give me some info on the best and cheapest way to transfer money from the UK for my 76 year old mum who has just received her contributory parent visa. I have spoke to the commonwealth bank in London who will transfer to the commonwealth bank in Australia for free if its over £10,000 Anyone had any experience in this?
I am considering moving back to the UK after an absence of over 40 years. It seems that my Australian Age Pension is more that twice as much as the current rate of State Pension. I am aware that my part UK Pension is frozen while I am in Australia but if/when I return, I can apply for a reassessment which stays in place as long as I stay in the UK or move to some God forsaken place like Turkey or Bosnia. My question is, given that the State Pension has increased by £20 since my date of claim, does my part Pension increase by that amount ? That would be an added incentive. I might add that I am not a property owner hoping to cash in on the fluctautions of the real estate market/exchange rate. I am just a poor old man wanting to go home and hoping that I can survive in the UK.
