My first question , is there any problem getting your pension (state pension and work pension) transferred regularly to Spain , wherever you are ? Is there anyway one can avoid problems with currency rate !
Thanks.

I am not of pensionable age get so cant answer , but I am almost sure you can get your UK pension transferred to Spain with out a problem , and the exchange rate is good at the moment .

Cheers Tony

Well I am sure there are advantages , I guess one of the biggest being that she can speak fluent Spanish !

Good luck with your move

Thanks tony. We both are fluent in Spanish as well as knowing a lot about spanish culture. I was wondering about the advantages of buying property, getting health insurance, etc. We were married in Spain so we also have the libro de familia. I have a valid seguridad social from having worked legally in Spain some time back. So with these sorts of assets I'm wondering about how that help us make a life in.spain.

You'll get more answers if you start a thread with a title about pensions!:)
You could also look at the FAQ's to see if there's anything there and do a search of the forum to look for recent posts
