I searched the site, & there are a couple of threads on this subject, but I feel that for the sake of everybody, it is worth resurrecting it:
If there is not a clear answer/solution, I will post anything that I discover.
In the meantime, here goes!
I will shortly be 65. I have worked here as a micro-entrepreneur for the last 16 years.
With UK pensions Although I have been paying voluntary contributions for the last few years, I still fall just short of receiving the full state pension, but I will receive the added SERPS (Supplement paid when earning more).
What the forum doesn’t answer so far is:
“Is it better to claim the UK pension from England, & the French one here, or do as the pensions office suggest & amalgamate them?”
I am concerned that if I lay my cards on the table with, I presume, in my case, RSI (Regime, Social Independents), I will have my options made for me.
Have any of you had experience of this?
Your advice would be gratefully received
