    Will Exported ESA Still Be Paid In EU Countries After Transition Period?

    I'm thinking of moving to The EU in the autumn. This will mean exporting my ESA. Does anyone know if The DWP will still pay ESA to UK nationals living in an EU country after transition period? Also, if you are being paid exported ESA, do the DWP still pay NI contributions towards your state pension.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Negotaitions are still ongoing about what will happen from Jan 1st 2021, so the situation may/will be different depending on if you move before the end of this year or not.

    This is the latest offical word, updated earlier this month:

    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Thanks, Nukecad. Looking at that link, it looks like they are saying you can continue claiming in EU as long as you move to EU before 31st Dec 2020 and inform The DWP. Good news.
