Officially Proving you are still alive and married question

Hi. Rather an unusual question.

I am retired. I lived for about 20 years in a European country, and receive a small state pension from that country. However,that county needs annual proof from a UK authority that I am still alive and still married in order for me to continue receiving this pension.

The only authority I can think of is "Births Deaths and Marriages".

Would I be correct, or has anyone any different solutions.

Thanks in advance

Probably a letter signed by your doctor should do.[He would be the obvious one to know if you were dead or alive.] but he would probably charge you £50 or more for doing that for you.

Nice to see you about again I take it everything went well with the operation and we can expect to see you back again on Friday night.We certainly struggled without you last week.

Thank you so much. Unfortunately they may have found something nasty which could lead to some urgent surgery. but awaiting biopsy etc. I hope to "see" you on Friday, I could do with a challenge of another sort!

john bunyan. Sorry to hear that you have been incapacitated in some way. I must have missed the boat on that one. Good luck in whatever it is that troubling you.

I was away for a couple of days last week and didn't get back until Saturday. Hope you are back on form this Friday night.

Why not ask the people requiring the information, what is acceptable to them. They must have some form of listed 'approved method' program in action?.

Thanks for the support. I do not want to go into details and hope to hear more in a week or two. Will concentrate on other things in the meantime! I think of the guys coming back from Afghanistan minus limbs and it puts ones medical issues in proportion.

john bunyan. Hope you get some good news.

I agree with you about the wounded soldiers. Many years ago a friend was detailed to attend the very early Blesma Games. He came back a changed man and was mightily impressed with the grit, determination and spirit the disabled men showed.
