DEAR DEIDRE: You went above and beyond to help me track down my pension, and I couldn’t be more grateful. 

I turned 62 in March and should have started to receive my pension. I’d worked as a postman for 41 years. 

Now I can live out my golden years exactly as I’d planned

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

Instead, I was sent on a wild goose chase. Every person I contacted about the missing money told me to forward my message to someone else. 

I was at the end of my tether and running out of ideas. 

You reached out to Royal Mail on my behalf, and quickly they discovered what had gone wrong. 

I’d missed one of the important forms, which they posted to me the very next day. 

Within two weeks, everything had been sorted and I’d had my first payout. 

I was getting so worried about money that I’d applied for various part-time jobs. I thought I’d have to work in a garden centre or a supermarket for the rest of my life. 

But now I can live out my golden years exactly as I’d planned. 

My wife and I have just bought a campervan, and are planning to do a tour of Scotland next summer.
