Today I completed the last forms, I hope, for my pension. This one for a meagre amount I might get from Britain.
I have had several forms to fill out over the last few weeks, because I turn 60 in March and want to claim both pensions, Canadian and British.
You have to let them know everywhere you have lived and the dates you lived there for the entire 60 years. As well as every place you worked, the address and payroll department. Good grief! I can't remember that postal code of the last place I lived and I lived there thirteen years.
Dates of when your stayed home to look after your children, dates of divorces and remarriage.
What money my husband gets on his pension broken down. I had to declare the £0.98 he gets as a graduated pension from UK and the tiny bit he gets for me £14.30. Presumably that is all it is going to cost him to feed me.
Anyway you younger folk, and not so young, prepare yourselves for the trauma of the Pension Application, it will come to all who read this, I hope, eventually.
