MOVING NHS PENSION TO MALTA

I'm working for the NHS and am moving to Malta. Has anyone every managed to move their NHS pension to Malta?

Hi - I'm not sure what problems you envisage, but there should be no problem in having your pension paid to a Maltese bank account - there are lots of UK citizens in Malta living off a UK public sector pension.

I'm guessing this question is about moving the paid-up value of the pension to another EU country/currency to freeze it against future currency movements.

Which isn't to say that I have the remotest clue what the answer might be.

Makes sense - if so, I think the answer is no in the case of public sector UK pensions, but the only way to know is to call the pension provider.
