Portability of WP & Widow Pension under an Agreement

Wife & widow pensions

If WP or widow pension is paid under an agreement, the short term and long term portability of the payment will be determined by the terms of the agreement.

Autonomous wife and widow B pensioners who travel to an agreement country that covers that payment, can transfer to a payment under an agreement to preserve qualification and portability of the payment.

When a person receiving WP or WidB leaves the agreement country and goes to a third country, future portability depends on the relevant agreement.
