British Pensioners Abroad

(Date posted: 2011-08-05 | Organizer: | Category: Expatriate News)

British Pensioners Abroad is a group of like minded individuals dedicated to trying to improve the financial lot of UK pensioners in Spain.

We are affiliated to the Pensioners Campaign UK who are lobbying and petitioning amongst other things for an improved non means tested basic state pension (£175 by next election - the govt's own poverty level - and eventual parity with the European average for pensions (11.2% GDP) which would translate to £300-350 for British Pensioners).

Pensioners Campaign UK now has 1.2 million members.

The BPA invites you and your members to log on IN THE ADDRESS LINE to www.pensionercampaignuk.org.uk and join the campaign - you have nothing to lose but your poverty.
