Does anyone know how I can access my state pension money via transferring to a new scheme? I looked at QROPS but it doen't appear to apply to state pensions. Any advice, much appreciated!

Debbers, I am not sure in which country you are, but usually sate pension money is not transferable to the UAE. You would need to cash it. If you are in the UK maybe they have different rules ?

I am on the same spot, but in my case my pension is in Canada and I need to wait couple of months to be considered a non resident (for tax purposes) to legally dodge some taxes and then cash it. There is no option to transfer overseas as there is no legal agreement between the Canadian Government and any other Country in regards to pension state funds transfer.

Generally, the agreements enacted cover the meeting criteria to start receiving the pension by that I mean that the period worked in different countries count for eligibility purposes.
