That’s a harsh punishment Gerry, is there no legal route, you can’t be the only one affected?

Ha ha ha .....

Enjoy Al !

The SA govt. ensured that I don't get my private pension that I paid a big whack into for 35 years .. We won't go back to live there.
Punishment for emigrating .... :evil:

So, my retirement in sunny Spain is ... Cleaning Swimming pools, Garden work , house maintenance,

I`ve been thinking on those lines but my missus may have put a damper on my enthusiasm (again) she reckons i would need to have a six pack, be hung like a donkey so as to get the money clients of my ambitions. Sadly she says I should stick to fitting Garry Glitters and servicing Old Boilers..Doh!

That’s a shocker Gerry. I’m guessing you have already thought about returning just to kick start the pension, then high tail it again? I have no clue about the rules in SA but denying you what is your legal entitlement to is so wrong.

Yes Neil, I have . If I return as a full resident for longer than 19 months continuously , I can claim 5% per year , of what I should have been getting, sadly , the way the costs there have spiralled up wards, in direct opposition to the standard of everything else, I couldn't live on that.

If I had still my own house, mortgage free, i could have possibly eked out a living .

No, I don't trust the govt, so I'll rather take my chances here in Spain .

Besides its way safer here .

Remember I was a Policeman , when I left SA in 2005 , I had a price on my head ....
