Leaving AE re applying for S1 (E121)

Will a person still be eligible to have an S1 after closing down AE and retiring ( is in receipt of state pension whilst running AE) or because once having started paying into the system through AE does it some way make you become ineligible for S1. Thank you MBK

I query because it has been pointed out that having started paying health contributions & also towards a pension you have chosen to follow as a French person who continues to contribute through life therefore the S1 is no longer an alternative. How true that is I have no idea but if it can be clarified I would be grateful.

Hopefully others will give you more and I could be wrong but as far as I understand it by becoming or being employed in France it becomes your so called 'competant state' in which case you can no longer get an E121 from UK (nor any other E form), but neither should you need it.
