Your entitlements if you return to the UK

Returning to the UK from the Philippines

If you are thinking of returning to the UK you could be in for a shock, many things that you think you would have an automatic right to as you are British and paid tax and National Insurance all your working life, may not be available to you. If you need to use the NHS, claim benefits, housing assistance, Pension Credit, Housing Benefit, or Council Tax Support, you may find you are not entitled to them or they will question you about why you returned, what family you have in the UK etc. This can take anywhere from a few days to 6 months.
