These figures DO NOT include men in the 60-64 age group.  The number of women in this group is 51,660.  We may assume that there are an equal number of men. Therefore the minimum number of elderly people aged over 60  is around 456,000 in 2009.

 

Just over 3% of all OAPs live in the European Economic Area beyond the UK.

Approximately 10.0% of all OAPs live outside the UK.
.
****The number of Winter Fuel Payments made in 2008 to pensioners in the EEA countries was about 78,000.  More than  300,000 elderly people did not or could not claim it.***

 

GRAPHS of the increase since the UK joined the EU in 1973 are viewable  by this link….

The proportion of British OAPs living in mainland Europe and Ireland relative to the worldwide TOTAL number of British OAPs rises year by year!
