Re: Important info re SGK and pensions

I would imagine this will be a huge blow to the OAPs from the UK who will have difficulty finding private insurance once they are struck off the SGK.

Re: Important info re SGK and pensions

i think the money we have paid into the SGK overthe past 2 years we should get it back. İ have not used SGK and been paying into it when were never coverd anyway. This will hit a lot of us living here. But i always say TİT this is Turkey.

Re: Important info re SGK and pensions

Would any of you fine folks be able to tell me if I would be able to join Bagkur(sorry if it's spelt wrong).I was hoping that we could join SGK but being as the Turkish gov don't want us, getting private insurance could be difficult.please feel free to private message me if you wish,it's really worrying.Happy Christmas to you all and have a wonderfully day.

Re: Important info re SGK and pensions

I cancelled my private pension to join the SGK because that seemed to be the requirement. Now I am 63, getting private health cover maybe difficult & not that affordable for me. Angry! Does not come into it.

I'm fairly sure that if you have paid 10 years NI contributions in the UK then you are entitled to NHS treatment.

Trouble is if you're having a heart attack over here what do you do, ask the ambulance to drop you at the nearest airport.

Seriously, we are in the same boat and totally ppp'd off. Been paying into SGK for 2 years and now may be thrown out of the scheme. It's really not on and the British Consulate should be doing much more to resolve this situation.

They have moved the goal posts so many times we don't know where we are now.

Re: Important info re SGK and pensions

Feel for you Traveller.I went down to our local SGK a month ago and they were really good.Explained that it would be another 2 month before we could join and at 240 ytl for the 2 of us we were looking forward to being covered.But this is Turkey the place for change.We are very disappointed and hoping we can join the Bagkur,but I've asked on here but still no info,here's hoping.
