    Philpost

    Letters sent from DWP 10th January arrived at my house today11/03/16Problem is one letter was a Life Form that is supposed to be sent back within eight weeks. Have to get form signed by lawyer, doctor, dentist blah blah blah. So you try and find a lawyer here on a Friday afternoon Ok go to doctor, doctor is outOk go to dentist, dentist does not have a rubber stamp to stamp the form, dentist says ok go to my sister at the hostpital, so off we go. Great she has a rubber stamp, So off to the post office. Airmail this to the UK please yes sir that will take four weeks. So have to send special delivery Philpost 1,600 pesosSo now I wait until 4pm to call DWP to see if I will get any money this Friday, Im in deep crap if that does not arrive. Dammit I need a drink.

    O dear, can you afford a drink is the question,
    Its amazing these days where there is email and fax and but you still have to use the letter system for something so important like this,
    What about asking the family for help

    That's a ridiculous amount of time to get a letter delivered

    I had to send a letter on Tuesday which was important so sent it via FedEx, picked up from my office at 4pm Tuesday, delivered and signed for midday Thursday

    The other letter that arrived was from the head of complaints manager, re my complaint last Christmas But he gave me his direct phone number, and can you believe a direct e-mail address and I received a reply in a few hoursIt turns out these life forms say you have eight weeks to return them, when in fact it is 16 weeks due to many complaints about postal delays. So payment will be made as usual. If I had known this I could have saved 1,600 pesos and sent by normal airmail.

    I agree with Simon, if it's of key importance send by fast courier.

    I've sent a number of letters via Philpost registered at P1400 and it takes around 20 days.
