    Daz.....

    I am having an ongoing argument with DWP about the same issue, they send me a form about every 4 months asking for details of my pensions, the company address`s and the amounts involved, invariably quoting a random sum of money as my stated income from these.
    What is also annoying is that for each ( I have 3 ) I get the same letter, even though each letter has the option to include up to 4 pension providers.
    I have a stock reply on template which I send back each time......
    I have 3, none are pensions, all are fixed annuities and will never alter in value, the total value is very low, I have one at"1020.00 PA, and the other 2 are £65 and £72 PA.............When I tell them this the always assume that th £65 and £72 must be weekly figures and rejig their figures accordingly...........Idiots.
    I have had a few lengthy phone calls, one DWP guy agreed it was pointless with me being in SG and said he would put a stop to it, and it did stop for 6 months, but last week started again.
    One reason I was given for it was that these figures would be used if ever I came out of support group and went on earning related benefit. That is unlikely to the point of never going to happen.
    So I understand your stance on this
