Nothing Can Go Wrong… Go Wrong… Go Wrong…

Part of my working life was spent in the UK, before I moved to the Netherlands. This means that a portion of my State Pension is sourced by the UK government.

Today I received a letter from the UK’s Pension Service assuring me that my UK State Pension payments will carry on when the UK leaves the EU.

I would be reassured, except that the letter was addressed to a Mr. Geoffrey Bonne, who they appear to think resides at my address.

All previous letters I have received from the International Pension Centre in Newcastle Upon Tyne have been correctly addressed. This one came from a different department of the service based in Wolverhampton.

It would appear that an error has crept into their data systems. I have written to them stating that I would be obliged if they would correct it before consequences graver than an incorrect surname befall me.

I remain not reassured.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
