Dear Claudienne

I worked with the Post and Telecommunications Department in St Catherine from 1968 to 1977.
When I applied for my pension the Post Office headquarters sent my file to the Ministry of Finance (MOF) on October 5, 2016. However, to date (October 13, 2017) I have received no letter of acknowledgement or even a telephone call with an update from the MOF.
Could you kindly get some information from the ministry for me.

Dear LP

Initially the MOF in error informed Tell Claudienne that your case had been "closed out 2003" after the Providence funds were sent to you.
A fter the Pensions Unit of the MOF computed your pension benefits and sent it to the Auditor, in March 2018 the auditor requested them to make certain amendments. The Pensions Unit made the amendments and returned the file to the Auditor on April 13, 2018.  We note that the MOF has now completed the processing of your pension benefits and t have sent you a copy of the letter they sent to the Accountant General (AG).
The AG told Tell Claudienne that they have sent you a form to fill out and requested you to send them your bank certification information and your e-mail address.
As soon as the AG receives this information you will begin to receive your pension.
We wish you all the best.

Tell Claudienne has been in communication with the Accounts Department at NIS and notes that you are now receiving your pension benefit.

We wish you all the best. Have a problem with a store, utility, a company? Telephone 876-936-9436 or write to: Tell Claudienne c/o Sunday Finance, Jamaica Observer, 40-42 1/2 Beechwood Avenue, Kingston 5; or e-mail: Please include a contact phone number.
