Re: European Pension

Good point Katy, I will make a start by ringing Scottish Widows in the UK, to see if its possible first.
Then before I sign on the dotted line find out if there are any fiscal advantages ( I live and work in Spain)

European Pension

Does anyone know if I took out a UK policy for a pension for example with Scottish Widows,
could I get a fiscal deduction on this in Spain in my renta declaration?

Re: British Consulate Open Day - Torremolinos 31.3.09

I have 19 years paid at the moment into the UK scheme and I´m currently paying the annual voluntary contribution.
As it is more than 11 years until I reach retirement age, I was wondering if there was any advantage in paying contributions after the 30 year period.

Re: British Consulate Open Day - Torremolinos 31.3.09

I HAVE A QUESTION.

I have noticed that from 2010, 30 years will be the amount of years for a full pension.

Once that I have 30 years paid, will there be any advantage at all to pay voluntary contributions for more than 30 years?

Thanks to all on the forum who keep reminding other members about the need for A Will.

Re: Train to Marrakesh

Its about 30 euros per person in a 4 person sleeper in first. You can book the whole 4 seats for yourself, a lot of people do this. Your own sheet sleeping bag is a good idea. Its overnight and relaxing, you can buy water and limited snacks once at the start of the journey, but have some of your own...
