The reciprocal social security agreements between the UK and respectively the USA and Bermuda are designed to co-ordinate the national insurance and benefit position of people who live or work in those countries. They aim to provide reciprocity for people who are ordinarily resident in one of the states party to the agreements, but not to residents of third countries.
Therefore a person who is ordinarily resident in a third country but temporarily resident in the USA or Bermuda cannot take advantage of the pension up-rating provisions in these bilateral agreements.
The Government have no plans to change the current arrangements for the payment of UK state pension paid overseas.
