State Pension payments
Your State Pension can be paid into any bank you choose including a bank in the country you’re living in. You’ll need the international bank account number (IBAN) and bank identification code (BIC) numbers if you have an overseas account.
You’ll be paid in the local currency. That could mean the amount you get may change due to exchange rates.More information on claiming your State Pension while living abroad can be found on the GOV.uk website.
