Pensions: Postal Services

Volume 463: debated on Wednesday 12 September 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many pension cheques destined for pensioners living in (a) Orkney and Shetland, (b) Scotland and (c) the UK were posted to the wrong address in each of the last five years. (154858)

The information requested is not available.

The Pension Service makes every effort to issue cheque payments to pensioners at their last verified address. Where cheques do go to an incorrect address, this may be for a variety of reasons, such as the customer moving and inadvertently omitting to let the Pension Service know of their change of address.
