I am guessing that most SFNers are in the bloom of youth.
However, there are some neo geriatrics among us.
One such person is myself , as was heralded by the arrival of a UK state pension assessment form.
The Pension Service recommend direct payments into my French account , one of the 'advantages' being ' you will benefit from competitive exchange rates based on bulk buying of currency'.
I for one did not know that H M's governmental departments were into currency dealing.
My original plan was to let payments trickle into my UK bank account until a four figure sum had accrued which thus might be of interest to one of the Forex companies – and I could chose an exchange rate.
Does anyone have experience – good or bad - of the 'advantages' of direct pension payments to French bank accounts ?( No control over exchange rates makes me nervous ), or was I thinking straight in the first place?
While on the subject of aging, anyone with a wonder cure for suspected sciatica?
That is apart from copious quantities of red wine which, rather alarmingly, seems to work.
