Originally posted something along these lines in the AGC bit but the RMP couldn't help. Anyway, been waiting for a CETV on my pension for divorce purposes for getting on 3 months now. The only advice I ever get from pay staff, JPA helpline and the pensions on divorce booklet is to write to the pensions department. This would seem reasonable, however, some sort of acknowledgment my application has been recieved would give both me and the solicitor that warm fuzzy feeling. I have the impression that the POD dept is akin to a scene from Brazil (if you've seen it you'll know what I mean) and for all I know the civil servant employed there who is probably on a job share, long term sick temp replacement short term contract part timed manned office every other wednesday has been using my letter as emergency bog roll due to defence cuts. In otherwords does anyone actaully do any work up there? If it was the same situation with a private pensions company I would have all the figures I needed in writing within 14 days. This situation is not acceptable.
