Campaign group End Frozen Pensions has been calling for a policy change to ensure all Britons receive the state pension increase each year, no matter which country they live in.

Frozen pensioners do have the option to move back to the UK and then their payments will increase to the current level.

But many older Britons may struggle to make the journey due to being frail in their health or other limitations.

Campaigners have set up a petition on the website, calling on political parties to end frozen pensions by entering into “new reciprocal social security agreements as soon as possible”.

In April, state pension payments are to increase by 10.1 percent as the triple lock policy has been reinstated.
