WA part 3 – Health, Pensions and Social Security

The Withdrawal Agreement

Part 3: Health, Pensions and Social Security

This is the third article (of a total of 6 articles) in British in Europe’s January 2020 information campaign about the Withdrawal Agreement and how it affects you as a British citizen living in an EU country.

In this article we take a look at what the Withdrawal Agreement has to say about health care, pensions and social security. You should note that the personal scope or people covered by the social security, healthcare and pensions provisions is different to that for the rest of the Withdrawal Agreement. Everyone entitled to residence rights under the WA is covered, as well as dual nationals, but the group of people covered is wider than that.

The following articles will look at

  • Working rights, professional qualifications and family reunification;
  • What’s not covered by the WA;
  • Frequently asked questions.

The first article in the series covered what the Withdrawal Agreement is (and what it isn’t), what it does, how it’s different from the no deal legislation that your host country will have produced, and who it covers. You can read it here.

The second article covered residence rights and procedures. You can read it here.
