As far as I know there's no problem about receiving a UK pension in NZ. (In order to save on the cost of transferring the money, it would be useful to have a UK bank acc…ount and transfer money, say 2 or 3 times a year). I believe that if you emigrate from the UK you can no longer contribute to the National Insurance Pension. In other words I think you are stuck with the number/years and months of contributions you had at the time of your emigration. Some aspects are technical. You really need to contact the Penions Service.

You can transfer your UK pension to a QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme) QROPS exist all around the world and the best Qrops for you depends on your circums…tances. You can read about Qrops by visiting www.the-qrops-specialist.com
You cannot transfer your UK pension to a 401K. However there are QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme - See related link below) available for residents of the …USA.

Currently, state pensions are paid to men over 65 years of age and to women over 60 years of age. The age for women to receive a pension is increasing between 2010 and 2020 by… which time they will receive the state pension after 65 years. There are plans to increase the age for both men and women with the age planned to rise to 68 years by 2046.
If it is a private pension, you should consider transferring it to a QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pensions Scheme) A QROPS has many benefits and income drawn is free …from UK Tax. If it is a state pension, it would probably be best to have it transferred to a UK bank account and then transferred to the Phillipines once every 3-4 months to minimize bank charges
The basic state pension is currently £102.15 per week.
It depends what pension you are relating to and what disability payment your are relating to. If you are a pensioner of pension age no you cannot get Disability Living Allowa…nce unless it was awarded before you became a pensioner, then it would continue as normal after your retirement. There are other benefits available if you are a pensioner and are disabled. Attendance Allowance is normally the equivalent to DLA (although not same value) and of course there is Carer's Allowance (if someone looks after you).

NO ! In order to qualify for the UK state pension - you have to have either paid national insurance contributions for a minimum of 30 years OR have national insurance credits …applied (while out of work). If you've been living abroad for 43 years you cannot have paid into the UK tax system - and are therefore not entitled to the UK pension ! It's not about whether you have dual citizenship - its whether you've paid into the tax system to qualify for state pension !
There's no specific age requirement for receiving a pension. Many employer-funded pension plans allow workers to begin drawing pensions in their early 50s. Some public-employe…e pension plans allow public employees to do so in their 40s. If you're referring to Social Security retirement benefits, they can begin as early as age 62, but more generally begin at age 66 1/2.

Yes you can but - if your total annual income (including your pension) exceeds the tax threshold, then you will be liable for tax on the whole amount.
A pension will be paid as long as the pensioner remains alive, and the pension fund is not bankrupt.
