  1. Thanks for your replies. I can't get a French State pension as the qualifying years are now minimum 10, and I only did 5. The Agirc/Arcco pension can be claimed at 62 if you have the qualifying years for a full state pension. If not then you wait until 65. Or 67 (nobody can tell me for sure). I filled out the form to create an Argirc/Arrco account, but because of a 'technical error' I have to call a pensions advisor. However I have just found this on the website :- If you live in a country of the European Economic Area* or in Switzerland: your pension application must be submitted to the pension institution of the State of your residence. The file compiled is sent to the French basic pension scheme, which sends a copy to Agirc and Arrco. The "European Coordination" service of Agirc and Arrco registers your request for supplementary pension. You will receive by mail a file to complete and return. Upon receipt, this file is sent to your Arrco fund and, if applicable, to your Agirc fund, for study of your rights. So after all this, it looks like HMRC might be my first point of call..............
  2. Hi - Need some help - please!!! So hard to get info on this. I'm 63 this year. I worked in Paris for 5 years and accumulated a decent number of Arrco/Agric pension points. I have emailed twice with my questions to zero response. My spoken French isn't good enough to call. If anyone could help, that would be great. I've calculated my new points total combining the 2 old funds into one. 1) What age do you claim it? I've read 62, 65 and 67! If I postpone does it increase percentage-wise or is it back dated? I will not be claiming a French State Pension. 2) Is it index-linked or do you stick at the rate you convert your points for the lifetime of the pension? 3) Is it a pure points calculation, or do you need qualifying years. 4) As a UK citizen, what would be my tax implications? Many thanks JohnnyH
