Working off-Island? Will you get a Jersey pension?

Mike Freer, business development manager, BWCI, replies:

You should contact the Social Security Department to discuss your case because it will depend on your circumstances. However, in general, if you will have paid Social Security contributions in Jersey for at least 4½ years you should be entitled to some old-age pension from Jersey, but it won’t be the full amount. If you have worked in any of the 22 countries where Jersey has a reciprocal agreement covering Social Security contributions you may be entitled to some additional pension. You can find more information here: https://www.gov.je/benefits/pensionsretirement/Pages/index.aspx

The first thing to do is make a list of the countries that you have worked in and the dates. You then need to contact the Social Security Department with the details and they will be able to advise you what you need to do.

It’s a good idea to start this process well before you retire, as it may take a while to obtain the information required from the various different countries.
