Hello Folks I have an elderly relative who is due his pension. He did his time in the mob but since getting out in the 70s has been living in Mexico. He reckons that now he is due his pension, he has been told that it cannot be paid into a Mexican Bank account and that he has to open a UK account to receive his money. This in turn neccesitates producing UK utility bills etc as proof of identity, which, obviously he can't due to living in Mexico for 30 odd years. To be honest I was hoping one of you guys might have some advice on a way round it. I just find it hard to believe that in this day and age, they can't send the money anywhere so long as he can show who he is via a passport or id card etc? Anyway, all advice is greatly appreciated and if it helps the old fella sort his admin out then I'll square you away with a yellow handbag.
