THE Alicante British Consulate team is coming to Javea on Wednesday June 29 to meet residents and give a presentation on the services the Consulate can offer to its citizens.
Laura Leeman, representing the Pension, Benefit and Healthcare team, will also explain what benefits you can apply for here in Spain, and how to make sure you’re properly covered for healthcare here and when on holiday elsewhere in the EU.
Now the holiday season is starting, it’s even more important to clarify exactly what your blue European Health Card covers and how to apply for one, so if you have any doubts, make sure you come.
Anyone else who has any queries about how their pension works, where they get their healthcare from or what the real rules are about Winter Fuel Payment, can also get the answers on the day.
Lloyd Milen, the British Vice Consul, will also be on hand to talk about what the Consulate can and can’t do, and to answer questions about living in Spain. Lloyd said: “Over the years, many British people have chosen Javea to live making it a really important area for us on the Costa Blanca, which is why I’m looking forward to going there again. I hope as many people as possible are able attend this Open Day and take the opportunity to get their questions answered and find out what their entitlements are in terms of pensions, benefits and healthcare.”
