UK Parliamentary Question: Zim pension payments

Zimbabwe: Pension Payments

23. Stephen Barclay: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations his Department has made to the Government of Zimbabwe since the most recent elections in that country on the withdrawal of pension payments to UK citizens. [900752]
Mark Simmonds: The Government of Zimbabwe has previously committed to paying pensions to British nationals and is seeking a mechanism to do so. With the new Zimbabwe Government now appointed, we will seek an update on this issue at the earliest opportunity, and continue to highlight the importance of this issue to British nationals.

    I am a UK pensioner resident in Zimbabwe. My UK National pension has been frozen at year 2000 levels due to the UK Govt’sintransigence in not giving inflation increase despite my having paid in full contributions for over 40 years.
    So this pension thing works both ways!

    I also have been done down by Old Mutual And First Mutual insurance companies who had offered a pittance to settle, I paid in from the 60s they bought buildings and rent them for USD now
    they have bought more buildings since Independance, They put on great golf tournements and their management drive the best cars where did the money come from. It was hard to pay those policies back in those days. Since then I worked for Olympus Gold Mines for 37 Years and New Dawn Mining bought the company and forced me on pension siting over 65 years with no gratuiety or benefits whilst Olympus allowed their employees to work well into their 70s and treated them well even gave them pensions
