There are no plans to change the conditions of entitlement to UK state pension, which is based on an individual’s national insurance record. The Government has previously reached an agreement with the EU on citizens’ rights in negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Subject to overall agreement and subject to reciprocity, the current structure of the EU social security co-ordination rules will continue to apply to EU and UK nationals covered by the Withdrawal Agreement.
