If like my wife and I, (we lose around $15,000 a year, a third of our
income through this scam), you lose your UK state pension, or indeed any
other overseas contributory government pension and you feel you have been
duped or may even have already protested and got nowhere, with two clicks
on the links below you can e-mail all the MPs to register your complaint,
ask a question or whatever.
In the subject line, just put your name,
headings such as pension theft, section 70 etc can be blocked and filtered
so MPs do not receive e-mail's.
The official figures are here
These e-mails are a three pronged approach,
1: To remind those MPs including Key, English, Turia and Bennett, directly
involved in the abuse that we are not going away.
2: To raise awareness to those decent MPs who may not realise what is
3: To find out how MPs think one way or the other so that we can list

The level of the
theft can be seen here here
The legislation that causes the problem is Section 70 of the Social Security
It is fine when dealing with overseas government pensions that are similar
to New Zealand Superannuation, non contributory, residency based.
The problem arises when it is applied to those government pensions from
overseas that are contributory, paid for out of earnings and in the case
of the UK State pension, with contributions from employers as well.
These pensions are deducted from New Zealand Superannuation, cleverly
stolen by outdated Section 70 which the government refuses to update because
it is revenue easily taken off us the most vulnerable, the elderly.
Section 70 is Immoral but legal, private pensions and incomes from any
other sources are not affected by it.
Challenges by individuals are met with the full force of government funds,
top notch barristers and supportive judges which merely prove the legality
but not the morality of Section 70.
are many we know who are upset by this theft
so if you want to share this page, copy this
and paste it into an e-mail to them.
Give it a
go, you never know, we have nothing to lose and please contact us here
if you know of any MPs for or against.
Those MPs who do not reply will automatically be classed as "MPs who
do not care".
and good luck,
