If you no longer have a UK bank account, Citibank offers a service where your pension can be paid directly to an overseas bank account. Please note other banks may operate a similar service and you should make your own enquiries regarding this possibility.
If your payment is made via the Citibank service, the bank details displayed on your monthly payslip will reference Citibank’s bank account and not your overseas bank account.
Pension payments are credited to UK accounts on the 21st of the month, or the Friday immediately prior if this date falls on a weekend or bank holiday. Your payment will take an additional few business days to credit your overseas bank account, depending on the country you live in.
