What if I live abroad and have an overseas bank account?
If you live abroad it may take a few extra days for your pension to clear into your overseas bank account, therefore it is likely that your pension will be received a few days after the dates specified above.
You will receive a P60 at the end of each tax year, which will show you the amount of pension you have received and the tax deducted.
