My mother inlaw(90) last week today received a letter from good old DWP saying she had to prove she was still alive (she has to get letter signed by her GP) or they will stop her pension. This apparently is due to the fact that some people have continued to cash their deceased relatives pension. Does this mean that they don't expect people to live until they are 90. I think it is disgusting and wonder where we are all heading half of us probably won't get a state pension, she worked until she was almost 70 she is now very frail and riddled with arthritis also she is watching her son (my husband) suffer with a terminal illness, i will have to call her doctors on Monday to get this letter signed I also have my own appointment with doctor on Monday to sort all this pain out once and for all, today I have nerve like pain on my spine does anyone else have this. My apologies for ranting but i really couldn't believe it when she told me. Xx
