I reached my retirement date on the 2nd Jan 2021.
Everything has gone well, except getting my S1.
I contacted the Overseas Health Service on the 7th Jan and was told my S1 would be issued and I should receive it in 3 weeks. No problem.
By the 29th Jan I had not received it, so I contacted OHS again, only to be told it had been issued and contact them again in another 2 weeks if I had not received it.
Having not received it, I have just contacted them again today 15th Feb, to be told it had not been issued, they could not say why I had been told it had, and that they would re-issue the form. I asked if it could be sent by e-mail and was informed that it can only be sent by post.
I now have another 3 week wait, in anticipation of receiving my form.
Has anybody out there retired since Jan, and is this normal.
I am very concerned as all the other aspects of my retirement and pension have been dealt with in a very efficient and professional manner.
Have a good day
