UK Benefit & Pension Websites

This site explains everything in detail and if you contact the Pension people in Newcastle

They will assist. This is the website for the International section of the Department of Work and Pensions.

Before moving I would suggest you contact them to discuss your personal situation as, although most benefits are transferable, everyone's situation is different. Benefits can be paid into a bank account in France but are subject to the rate of exchange. This is the website regarding the International section for the State Pension. This too can be paid overseas but please contact them and provide details.
