    Morning All
    Received some very helpful advice in this forum already e.g. COPE wrt my UK State pension.

    On to the next one!
    I worked full-time in Cyprus for six years, and paid Social Insurance(6.3%) as did my employer( 6.3% ).

    Am I entitled to a Cyprus pension when I reach retirement age?
    Can this fund be switched to the UK and make a contribution to my state pension?

    I have tried to contact the SI dept in Cyprus and various other agencies: the school, HMRC...
    No one appears to know for certain. There is some form of reciprocal relationship between Cyprus and the UK, but...

    Has anyone been through this scenario before?. If so, please help!
    Warm regards

    It depends what the minimum period of contribution is in Cyprus. 6 years might not be enough.I think the UK state pension is ten years? If the info not available online?
