This is for those British expats who are currrently in receipt of a UK part opension

I head-up a non profit volunteer organisation called British Pensions in Australia [bPiA]. The mission of BPiA is to achieve eventual annual uprating of the currently frozen UK pensions here in Australia.


Success in our efforts will ensure all in Australia who get a UK pension or part thereof will have more retirement income. Any extra pension sent us from the UK does reduce the Aussie pension, if you have one, but only by up to 50 cents in each extra dollar received from the UK.


BPiA has a website http://www.bpia.org.au which I hope all of you expats will visit. I also hope you will join us, for membership is only $20/annum. The funds we collect are used to run the organisation but most these contributions are sent to the UK to pay for lobbyists to promote our messages in the UK news papers and in the UK Parliament where we have set-up a website http://www.frozenbritishpensions.org.



BPiA also helps anyone with UK pension problems and we can guide you in seeking out your UK pension entitlement and show you how to boost it if required. BPiA also knows and shares with members how to increase your UK pension when travelling to many places overseas.


I recently spoke on ABC TV about this disgraceful UK pension issue http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-05/jim-tilley-hopes-brexit-could-see-frozen-pensions-increase/8163438

and was interviewed too at home by a senior ABC journalist Norman Hermant.

I hope I can interest many of you Adelaide Poms to contact me by phone if you wish on 1300 308 353 or 02 9521 7964. The purpose would be to either discover more about any UK State pension to which you may be entitled or to join us in our fight for some true British justice in having our UK pensions indexed/uprated each year as they are in the USA, the EU, Israel etc.

Kind Regards Jim Tilley Hon Chairman BPiA

Thank you Jim.

The pension issue is a disgrace. My own parents are victims of the double standards with my father having served a long period in the royal navy....and choosing to spend his retirement years outside of the UK.

I will pass on your details to them.
