Delaying registering for healthcare in France could save tax on your pension
If you are planning to take your pension as cash, avoiding social charges could make a considerable saving.
One of the key concerns for expatriates arriving in a new country is healthcare. While we hope we will not need to use it anytime soon, we need the peace of mind of knowing that we, and our families, have access to healthcare and are covered financially for it. For many British expatriates, therefore, registering with the French system is high on their priority list.
Be aware, though, that you should consider the options for your pension fund before you register for healthcare.
