I’m looking for information and advice for friends of ours.
They plan to move to Brittany in October, (renting for a year then buying) to be here before the end of transition so benefit from its terms.
Neither of them currently receives state pension, my friend’s wife will get hers in October 2021
The questions I am looking for information on are
What options should they explore to get health cover until October, given their age it won’t be cheap, are there options through PUMA?
Will they be eligible for the current S1 arrangements as although they settle here before end of transition it will not be until October that one of them is eligible to apply in theory for an S1.
The lady is applying for an Irish passport as her mother was Irish, will this have any bearing on the options?
Has anybody got information on what will be the position of current residents who are early retirees when they reach UK state pension age only after the transition period has finished?
Can anybody recommend a good English-speaking insurance broker/company to help them through this maze as their situation is a little unusual.?
