  • Five alliterative questions – Quick Quiz
    Here are five questions with a common theme - the key word in all of them begins "b*mb". Why not bimble through them and see how many you can get right?

British Pensioners in Malta/Gozo

English pensioners in Malta

Many of our members are pensioners, so here's a place to discuss the relevant issues.

Its only available to those who qualify - from memory, if you qualify for a state pension, then you qualify for S1 - I think its a minimum of 10 years NIC gets you a part pension and an S1.


If you are resident in the UK then you get NHS for free whatever, as its based solely on residency.

ps S1 is actually more than just for retirees - it combined all the old E106, E121 etc forms

John 07900 - free in the sense that as a retiree you don't have to pay Maltese NIC's, or the equivalent, if you have paid the required number of NICs in the UK. What cover you get in Malta depends on the rules governing their NHS, not the UK NHS.

Dave Dee - To qualify you have to have paid the required number of NICs in the UK (offhand I don't know what this is). If you haven't paid the required number then you probably don't qualify. However, you can pay retrospective contributions (how retrospective depends on your age).
