Probably because the state pension goes up every year and you get yours in 2024.

Says forecast so my guess if someone asked for the forecast 6 months ago it might say something else and the same in a year the forecast amount might be different. 

That's right, it even says that if you do not draw your state pension and leave it for every year you will get a extra £4 and change each week ,well woopy du ,I will past on that one if I am still around

What I cannot understand under the British pension system is why the government makes it difficult for its citizens to relocate overseas. There are penalties impose if you want to move out of the U.K. The United States by comparison is neutral on this subject and Japan encourages their citizens to go overseas in retirement under their Silver Columbia program.

Economics.

Some Countries prosper when their citizens relocate overseas because of millions/billions in remittances sent back to the country and boosts their economy. Two examples; Mexico, Philippines.

U.K. is about the size of Oregon. Imagine if Citizens there started moving out of Oregon along with taking pensions/benefits courtesy of Oregon without spending that money (various taxes included) back into Oregon's economy. Their economy would end up like some of the states like Michigan where many departed from the loss of auto jobs.

It depends if the UK has a Social security agreement with the country you are moving to.For instance I would get the same here as in the UK with the yearly rise.

If I lived to be 150 on the gov pensions, I would not break even on the amount of money that I have paid in tax over my working life , if I stayed in the UK I could not survive on a UK pension
