No-deal Brexit: British pensions to be uprated until 2022 if UK crashes out of EU.
The British government announced on Tuesday that state pensions for pensioners living in the EU will be uprated each year until 2022 if the UK crashes out of the EU on October 31st without a deal.
Previously the government had announced that pensions would be uprated just for 2019/2020 if there is no deal, but with a no-deal Brexit having grown increasingly likely in recent weeks, the government has extended the guarantee for each year until 2022.
That means pensions will be uprated until the end of the 2022 tax year which is in March 2023.
Uprating essentially means an increase in the value of a state pension based on the ‘triple lock’ mechanism, and guarantees that the basic state pension will rise by a minimum of either 2.5 percent, the rate of inflation or average earnings growth, whichever is largest.
While pensions have been uprated for British pensioners living in the EU they are not for others living in certain countries like Canada or Australia.
The new three-year, no-deal guarantee is to give the UK government the time to negotiate either EU-wide or bilateral agreements with member states in order for uprating to be continued.
There are nearly half a million British pensioners living throughout the EU. The government says pensioners will soon receive text messages alerting them to the new guarantee.
Work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd, once a vocal critic of a no-deal Brexit said: “We will be fully ready for Brexit and are leaving in a way that protects the interests of citizens here and in EU member states”.
If the UK manages to secure a deal with the EU in the next few weeks, the Withdrawal Agreement guarantees that uprating will continue for life for those British pensioners already living in the EU. https://www.thelocal.es/20190904/no-deal-brexit-british-pensions-to-be-uprated-until-2022


New works set for Torrox: The areas of El Penoncillo and Calaceite have been given the go ahead for some of the most important transformation works in their history in a new announcement by the Ayuntamiento of Torrox.
A budget of around €300,000 has been invested into the plan which is at the tender stages for a complete transformation of the infrastructure of the two areas by the Torrox Council.
The first phase of the project is to improve the lighting facilities throughout Torrox to meet with current standards. The new lighting will also be installed along a large stretch of the N-340 that runs through the area. Alongside this, a new roundabout will be constructed in Calaceite to help with traffic management.
This latest undertaking by the Torrox government is coinciding with the major refurbishment works of the Lithoral Path that’s runs through to Nerja, with an estimated total budget of €2 million, is set to transform a long forgotten area of the Axarquia coastline. https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/09/04/new-works-set-for-torrox/
