replied to the thread UK pension,etc
on the Austria forum:
I have a list of questions that need answering, some expats may know the answers or where to go for answers.
We want to move to Austria, mainly as the climate (both weatherwise and culturally) is more suited to our health and fitness needs.
It's probably best just to list the questions:
I get UK retirement pension next year, but have been retired off early so do not work. I hope the pension will be paid will be OK ( we presumably have to guess what happens when UK drops out of EU).
But my wife has a disability - her disability allowance and incapacity (or whatever they call it now) should be paid, I think.
What about medical expenses? as she is unable to work is medical care free?
What about prescription charges (she also has diabetes)?
When one reaches retirement age is medical care free for everyone?
What about care for the elderly unable to live at home ? (We intend to stay there).
I will be grateful for any help,
I realise it is some time since you posted this message enquiry. But I was just wondering if you have moved to Austria already and do you still require some assistance with this, I may be able to help.
Can any one recommend an immigration lawyer who can help with the move from USA to Vienna, please?
we are a family of 3 and would like to move our business and personal life from USA to Vienna, Austria in a few months. Please let us know any regulations, incentives and requirements for doing so. My husband is an American, I am a Bulgarian.
A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire
abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to
Joshua Wood at: email@example.com.
We fell in love with the nature, and its atmosphere.
Very lovely area, quite but on the other hand all the facility is close.
