UK old age pensions for Jersey residents

9.8.16.L3 Updated on:

Calculating pension entitlement

  1. Where a client has worked in Jersey and in other reciprocal jurisdictions (including the UK), the pension will be a percentage of a full pension based on the number of years worked and the total contributions record.
  2. In the UK the normal minimum number of years for a pension entitlement is eleven out of a possible maximum forty-four, giving a 25% UK pension. Under the agreement with Jersey, if the total of contributions in the UK and Jersey exceeds eleven, then a UK pension will be paid.
  3. People close to retirement age, having paid contributions outside Jersey, should consult Customer and Local Services for details of likely entitlement.
