Proof of life and residence for foreign pensions

If you’re a British, Irish, Commonwealth or European Union citizen and receive a pension from another country, and you are a resident of Battle Civil Parish, we can provide a stamp on your ‘Proof of life’ form to confirm your residency in the UK.

Currently, there is no fee for this service, but you do need to contact Battle Town Council to make an appointment. Please email enquiries@battletowncouncil.gov.uk or call 01424 772210.

Each person named on the ‘Proof of life’ form will need to attend the appointment and bring the following:

  • the ‘Proof of life’ form you need us to authorise
  • a valid passport, driver’s licence, bus pass or other photo ID

You will also need to bring one of the following to prove your address:

  • a utility bill dated no more than 3 months before the date of your appointment
  • a bank or building society statement or passbook dated no more than 1 month before the date of your appointment
  • a council tax bill dated no more than 1 year before the date of your appointment
