    They can't wait for me to die

    DWP that is. Yet another LIFE CERTIFICATE turned up. Can't trust the post so another 40 to send by courier. Just for fun, I have emailed the Secretary of State to say is it not time the DWP set up a secure server so that certificates can be emailed? Up to now no reply.

    What requirements do they ask for to prove you are still alive?

    Would a Facebook video of me singing (badly) 'Satisfaction' on the karaoke suffice ?

    Haha... I have to carefully vet what (orrible) pics my Mrs posts of me.

    I hate being an old wreck.

    They send you a form to fill in that has to be witnessed by doctor, lawyer, Mayor. Same sort of person you would use to sign for your passport. Then you have to return it within 16 weeks from the date on the letter. Mine was dated 8th January and received it 9th February. So have to use courier to be sure it will arrive back in the UK
