I received a letter from the Income Support Office; this is part of it;

as I've received two letters from them already stating when I claimed and have filled in a form stating why I am asking for it to be back dated.....isn't this a bit of a waste of time and money?

I also received a letter from the Tax Office...this wanted information as (quote)

"you are getting a pension, approaching state retirement age or a woman approaching 65"

eermmm...did I fall in a time warp???time races by
I'm only 55!!!... a few years to go yet. Not that I'd mind retiring...would save me the inevitable job hunting I'll have to face at some point.
a few more miles on the clock before I do this!

Hmmm Ruth, given nine times out of ten the intro to phone calls state your call may be recorded for training purposes, youd think they would know the answers to the questions they ask, sometimes feel as if your being asked to do their job for the t.v and crisps Ruth Im all for one wise man in Portugal wrote recently dont hurry be happy, not a bad idea lol Auds
