FAQ : Brexit

At the European Council meeting of April 10, 2019, the member States postponed the date of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, which was originally scheduled for March 29, 2019.

The United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal by October 31, 2019, unless the withdrawal agreement is ratified by both parties by that date.

Two scenarios are possible:

  • The United Kingdom leaves in an orderly manner (pursuant to the withdrawal agreement) by October 31, 2019: European Union law will cease to apply in the UK from January 1st, 2021, i.e. after a transition period that is scheduled to end on December 31, 2020, and can be extended by one to two years.
  • The United Kingdom leaves the Union without a withdrawal agreement: there will be no transition period and European Union law will cease to apply in the UK from from November 1st, 2019 if the UK Parliament does not ratify the withdrawal agreement by October 31, 2019.  

I have worked both in France and in the United Kingdom: how will my periods of employment in each country be counted toward my French and British retirement pensions on and after the withdrawal date ?

Under the withdrawal agreement

  • Your periods of employment will be taken into account for eligibility purposes and towards the calculation of your retirement pension entitlements in France and the United Kingdom, pursuant to the Social Security coordination rules set forth by the European regulations, which will continue to apply during the transition period (through December 31, 2020).

I am drawing a French and British retirement pension while residing in the United Kingdom, in France, or in another State. Will my pensions continue to be paid on and after the withdrawal date ?

Under the withdrawal agreement

  • You will continue to be paid your British and French retirement pensions in accordance with the principle of “exportability,” pursuant to the Social Security coordination rules set forth by the European regulations. Indeed, these provisions will continue to apply during the transition period.

Without a deal

  • France and the United Kingdom will each apply their own domestic rules. Under French legislation, retirement pensions are paid abroad, whether or not there is a coordination agreement. This means that you will continue to be paid your French retirement pension where you reside. However, you will need to contact your British pension fund for information on the payment rules for your British retirement pension.

I am French-insured and planning a vacation in the United Kingdom in summer 2019. Will I be entitled to health care coverage if needed, and what will the rules be?

Under the withdrawal agreement

  • You will still be entitled to health care coverage through your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or, if you do not have it, by showing a Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC). Your EHIC or PRC will remain valid throughout the transition period (through December 31, 2020), and provide access to and coverage for any care that becomes medically necessary during your stay. Under the withdrawal agreement, the rules will remain the same and you will receive care under the same rules as for members of the British Social Security system, with coverage provided by your French health insurance fund.
    If you do not have an EHIC or a PRC, you will need to pay your medical bills upfront, but you can then submit them to your French health insurance fund for reimbursement.

Without a deal

  • The European coordination rules will cease to apply. Only domestic law will apply. If you are covered by a French health insurance system, your fund may reimburse you on a flat-rate basis for any medically necessary emergency care you received during your temporary stay abroad (outside the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland).

I am drawing only a UK pension (old-age, disability, survivor’s, etc.) and residing in France. Will my health insurance coverage change on and after the withdrawal date, and if so, what will the rules be?

Under the withdrawal agreement

  • Your health insurance coverage along with the rules for membership will not change. The current European Social Security coordination rules will continue to apply during the transition period (through December 31, 2020). In your case, the rules stipulate that if you are drawing a pension from only one State and residing in another State, the State that is paying your pension is responsible for providing your health insurance coverage.
    This means that your health insurance expenses in France will be covered by the United Kingdom. 
    To receive coverage, you will need to apply to your UK retirement pension fund for the S1 portable document entitled “Registering for health care cover” (equivalent to the E 121 form). With this document, you will be able to register with the local health insurance fund where you live in France. You will remain eligible for the same benefits under the same rules as now, up through December 31, 2020. To learn more

Under the withdrawal agreement

  • As you are only drawing a French pension, you retain health insurance coverage under the French Social Security system. You can come back to France for medical treatment, regardless of the reason for your stay, and be covered for all the care you receive in France (medically necessary and scheduled treatments) pursuant to French regulations. You will need to contact the last health insurance fund to which you belonged before you left France to apply for reimbursement of your health care expenses, or alternatively to the local health insurance fund where you are staying in France.

I am UK-insured and working in the United Kingdom while my family is residing in France and my spouse is not working. Will I continue to draw British and any French family benefits on and after the withdrawal date, and if so, what will the rules be?

Under the withdrawal agreement

  • You will continue to draw family benefits under the same rules as currently since the provisions under the European regulations will continue to apply during the transition period (through December 31, 2020). The State that pays family benefits is determined on the basis of your and your spouse’s employment and residency and on your children’s residency. Employment is the decisive factor when determining the competent State by priority right, the non-priority State being determined on the basis of the children’s residency.
    In your case, the British fund is competent by priority right for the payment of your family benefits. France, which is the non-priority State, will pay a supplement if total French family benefits come to a higher amount. To learn more

Without a deal

  • The European Social Security coordination rules will cease to apply. Eligibility for French family benefits will be determined solely on the basis of domestic legislation. Under French legislation, family benefits are awarded if the children and the parent who declares them as dependents are legal residents of France. However, if you meet the requirements for legal residency in France before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, family benefits will continue to be paid throughout a grace period, during which you will need to apply for legal residency through your local “prefecture.” To learn more, you are advised to contact the appropriate authorities. You may want to refer to the French Interior Ministry’s website.
