It’s still too early to say what the effects of leaving the EU will be. For the moment, nothing has changed and you don’t need to do anything. We will keep you updated and let you know when there are any changes to the law.
There is a lot of uncertainty in the markets at the moment, which is likely to continue, but the government and the Bank of England have put contingency plans in place. Changes to interest rates could affect private pensions or your savings and investments, and if you’re worried you should get in touch with your pension provider, bank or investment manager or your financial adviser. Don’t make any hasty decisions. It’s better to take the long view until the situation becomes clearer. If you are concerned, you should take independent financial advice. You can find an adviser at www.unbiased.co.uk.
If you’re an EU citizen living in the UK, your rights will stay the same for the time being. If you experience any discrimination or you want advice, contact your local Citizens Advice for help. If you are a UK citizen living in an EU country your rights haven’t changed either. Although your situation may change in the future that will depend on any negotiations and agreements that take place. You will have time to take action before any changes come into effect.
We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know if there is any action that you need to take.
