    Thanks again friend
    Never had a problem, state pension and two small private pensions all there every month. The state pension DWP send through Citibank, and they follow American bank holidays, so sometimes there is a slight delay. My payday is a Friday so the last American holiday was independence day, that was a Thursday so my pension did not appear in my account until the following Monday night.

    Pension update,
    well at long last i have today received an email from DWP simply saying
    ( I can confirm that your state pension has now been awarded and a letter has been issued to you ) so now i am to await the next step , is it as much or more than the forcast i have, will i get that letter before being paid, and will it arrive in BDO without any problems, well at the moment that's as exciting as it gets for now

    Good luck Stewart.

    I'm still nervous about having mine paid into (my wife's) BDO account, after the fiasco last time... where BDO returned the payment to DWP.

    My pensions all get paid into my UK Bank.
    Since reading the experiences of folks on the forum I have become more interested in having payments made directly into a Philippines Bank.....would be so much less complicated for my wife.

    its seems much more convenient to have it sent directly to a a Philippine Bank and that's my reason for doing so.

    but just now im wondering about this letter the have posted DWP , if it was registered or courier they would have given me a tracking number, if its normal post how long will it be before i get it and if they are returning my documents with this, i think DWP concern me more than the Philippine banks

    It is usually about 3 to 4 to 5 weeks for me regular mail. On the back of your envelope you will see it is stamped when it arrived in the Philippines, then stamped with the distribution depot then your local post office. Just looked at an envelope I receved from the UK stamped June 13, June 27, 02 July The letter inside was dated MAY Good luck.

    update, while waiting for this letter, i neglected checking my bank balance, well today i walked past the BDO ATM and thought i will just check , so i did and i read the balance and printed a statement, and thought the bank had done me i read there was less than the balance i had deposited required to open the account, well i get home and go to online banking to see where my money had gone, then i realised i missed out a digit so where i thought i had less money i had heaps more, there were 2 payments from DWP one last week a large amount then another paid in yesterday of a smaller amount, so one very Happy chappie here
