Does anyone have the answer to these questions please?
I am English,62, full time resident in France. I pay UK tax on my teacher’s pension but will have to wait another 4 years to claim my state pension. I have a small income here as an Auto-Entrepreneur but the RSI have yet to take any contributions from me.
- Is it correct that my healthcare is covered for 2 years by my EHIC? My card expires in May. I will have been here for two years at the end of July. Is it possible that I could apply for another, I think not.
- If not or in the interim, how can I obtain access to healthcare here until the RSI get round to taking contributions? My wife is French and contributions have been taken from her, so she now has a Carte Vitale.
and 3. What if I stopped working? Would I have to take out private insurance until my UK state pension was due?
