Where in the world you live and work as a UK citizen will impact your entitlement to social security payments. If you are living abroad on a permanent basis you may be entitled to social security benefits and pension rises if you live in an EEA country, Switzerland, or a country that has a reciprocal social security agreement with the UK.
See Living and working in the EEA for details of your social security requirements and rights.
