For migrants subject to reciprocal agreement, contributions to social security authorities in the United Kingdom and the country of origin under the agreement are counted when determining the right to benefits payable by each country. The agreement contains detailed rules for different types of benefits and information on whether a worker is receiving benefits from the UK or his country of origin. I have stayed in the UK and am currently receiving payments from the United Kingdom Retirement Pension at the International Pension Centre. I decided I wanted to travel abroad for a year. Can I get my New Zealand Superannuation while I do it? When a person entered the United Kingdom and at the time of his or her last existence in New Zealand, it enjoys national ageing under New Zealand law, contrary to this convention or previous agreements, provided that it exceeds the retirement age under UK law, it is entitled, subject to paragraph 6 of this article, to a basic pension at the normal rate, as if it met the contribution requirements of such a pension. When the applicant treats a married woman who does not meet any of the conditions in paragraph 4, as if her husband, not her, met the aforementioned contribution requirements. It is not surprising that the previous government was greatly embarrassed by the anomaly of the double claim that the Department of Social Development has a discriminatory two-tier pension policy that does not treat all foreign retirees on the same level. I have been travelling across the UK for over 26 weeks, while receiving payment from the New Zealand Superannuation abroad. I was planning to return to New Zealand at the end of my travels, but I have now decided to reside in the UK, what should I do? If your partner receives NZ Super or Veteran`s Pension, your British pension has no influence on it. Even if your partner has a foreign pension but does not receive a New Zealand benefit, his or her foreign pension has no influence on the New Zealand Superannuation or his partner`s veterans` pension. The benefit, other than lump sum payments, is paid in accordance with the provisions of this agreement for events that occurred prior to its entry into force. The determination of rights in accordance with the provisions of this agreement takes into account the periods and periods of insurance completed before they came into force.

In all cases where paragraphs 1, 2 or 3 of this article apply, the authority with which the application, notice, appeal or document has been filed has been submitted immediately to the competent authority or the insurance authority of the other party. This publication is www.gov.uk/government/publications/reciprocal-agreements/reciprocal-agreements Unlike NZ Super, the UK National Pension Insurance has nothing to do with tax contributions. It is not publicly funded and it is not an advantage. It is a pension run by the UK government and financed by a tax, with every worker in the UK paying a fixed amount each week. But it is paid only to those who have earned it, the amount that will be collected according to the number of contributions paid, in the same way as a pension or a private pension. However, the new 1970 agreement obtained a concession for those who, prior to 1970, had made voluntary contributions to the British pension from New Zealand on the basis of the British government.
