The Social Security Reciprocal Agreement has been signed by Malta and UK, at the time the UK Malta double tax treaty was agreed. The agreement ensures that individuals who have lived or worked in both countries can qualify for certain social security benefits in each country based on their periods of contributions.
Under the agreement, Maltese nationals who have lived or worked in the UK and British nationals who have lived or worked in Malta may be eligible for benefits such as retirement, disability, and survivors’ benefits, as well as healthcare benefits.
