sorry misunderstood - no we dont, the pension systen is odd, if u live in one of the EU countries like spain your pension is indexed and goes up - if u live here its no, whatever it was on the day you turn 65 thats where it stays.
but if i come for a holiday say 6 weeks and im in any of those countries i ring pensions uk tell them when i get and again when i leave and for those weeks I get the current rate in the UK, then it drops back
all a bit odd - and if I applied while i was there i get a bus pass - i would like that 6 weeks of hertz car hire is more expensive that a return flight
