    I agree totally with reference to benefits, with one exception if you have paid into the NIC for 44 years, and that is 4 over the requirement, you are more than entitled to take retirement pension
    god knows there aren't many who actually work for that amount of years full time these days inthe UK

    The rules have now changed its 30 years. 44 years went a while ago. We was surprised when we got our pension forecast from the government to told we have 30/30 and we would get our full pensions.

    Sorry no benefits if you are resident in another country only folk entitled to government money are retirement pensioners
    That is not correct. Go to the British counsel site, it explains other benefits other than pension that you will be entitled to receive in Spain including long term incapacity benefits and child allowance if you follow the correct procedure

    As a correction to all the above, a family can claim child benifit IF the father, or adopting father is over 65 and that applies to child tax credits also

    Legally No. It´s surprising though how many people are still claiming though using an address in the UK.

    If you know who's claiming why don't you report them? Apparently it's easily done now.

    Why bother.................. what have the UK government ever done for us. Besides, they'll only use the money saved to pay for an MP's second home furnishings, or an expensive lunch.

    Call me a cynic if you like, but thats the way the UK has made me. People call the Spanish corrupt, the UK is no better. Why report someone who is probably in desperate need of the cash, and take away a possible lifeline, so that some MP can fiddle a bit more on his expenses claim.

    You pay into the system all your working life, but as soon as you leave the country your "childens" entitlement stops, yet some illegal immigrant with 15 kids can enter the UK under the guise of "asylum seeker" and start claiming it straight away.

    What is that commandment "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" ? To me that means screw the government before they screw you
