I have just received my second letter from the UK Pension Service in 2 years asking me to complete a 'Life Certificate' confirming that I am still alive. As before, they ask that a responsible person from a list of professions countersign the form. Do Thai Widows & Expats have the necessary standing to countersign these forms and, if so, how much to they charge for this service. P.S. The last time I received such a letter I seem to remember that most other UK Expats receiving a State Pension received similar requests at the same time too.
