star this property answer text <p>The Payment of state pensions to UK nationals has not been outsourced.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Work and Pensions continues to make assessments for all customer benefits. When issuing benefits and pensions to customers overseas, the Department has to use a sponsor bank to facilitate the payments. The Department’s current banking provider for overseas payments is Citibank N.A (London Branch). The Bulk Foreign Exchange Services contract is contracted by HM Revenue &amp; Customs through the office of Government Banking on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions. Benefit and pension payments to overseas countries are forwarded by Citibank to the appropriate country’s clearing service which then disperses them directly to the customer’s chosen bank.</p><p> </p> more like this
