I have in recent weeks given notice that I have been awarded a small french pension. I was one of the initial autoentrepreneurs and worked for about 2.5 years about 3 years ago.. I was a UK pensioner at the time, then gave up the work and went back to the S1 regime (lots of hassle then as it was all new to the French administration). I had no idea I would be entitled to a French pension (about 45 euros a month) for that short period that could begin in January when I am 71. My question is, has anyone actually applied for this small pension - I have done a wee bit of research and if I am reading this correctly, it means that my meagre income from the UK taxed via the French social tax system - no worries there as its not worth worrying about - and more importantly I will if I accept, lose my rights to S! health care and therefore become a member of the french healthcare system. I also wonder what would happen should I have to move back to the UK ie will I still be entitled to UK health care. If all is hassle free, how do I go about applying for this pension. You seem to get an awful lot for very little money, is there any time limit to how long this pension is awarded or is it similar to the UK state pension, and become a member of the French Healthcare system without any contribution from the UK. So many questions to ask. I also wonder if I would be better waiting to see the outcome of Brexit - as there may be some complications therein.
