"Paying pensions cannot occur across borders beyond transition"

"Without a deal, insurers and pension providers would be legally barred from sending out payments, leaving policies dormant on their accounts."

And it does not effect only UK ex-Pats. There are 38 million people living in Europe outside Britain who have policies with U.K. insurers. All of them will be similarly prevented from receiving their payments should this utter drivel come true. Like I said earlier, I wonder how people originating from outside the EU mange to survive.
