Well the first lot sent me another letter. Dated three days after my birthday, but taking five days to get to me. " As you have not contacted us regarding your pension we have put it into a holding fund"
That didn't really wind me up did it!! Left hand don't know what the right hand is doing.
One half hour long phone call later....
Apparently the financial advisor sent the forms this morning... No that was me on t'interweb last night. So what are you doing about it?
"Well its too late to transfer money today, but tomorrow we will transfer it to your new pension provider, and you should have it by the end of the week." Watch this space. So money will disappear into the ether for a week while it goes from Wilmslow to Manchester. Do you think me offering to lend some roller skates would help?
As for the other shower.
Nice man on phone... Yes they received the copy of my birth certificate, decree absolute and six passports and a letter from the tax man with my NI number on it. The transfer people haven't done anything because it needs a name change. The name change people haven't done anything because its due for transfer. So its in a loop. Yes he can give me a figure.Yes someone will send out the transfer forms. I should get them within a fortnight!! As I said, it's a good job I'm not starving, and desperate for it.
The truck drivers insurance have written to us. They accept responsibility. They can sort it out and provide him with a courtesy car. Only about ten days too late mate. Volvo assist had it all sorted in 24 hours.
It's making hubby think he might like to retire early too. He's very nervous every time a lorry comes up behind him. Only problem seems to be able to lay our hands on his money, which is with another couple of pension companies.
Raspberry jam looks nice, Dove.
Well done Clarington. Fingers crossed.
