Questions Of Cash: 'Pension fund firm rejected my French documents'

Q. I am about to retire – my birthday is on 30 September – when my pension should start. I have a pension fund with Winterthur Life and applied to receive my pension. But it will not accept my French birth certificate as proof of age. I have explained to Winterthur that the French system is different from Britain's: original birth certificates are always kept in archives at the place of birth. This avoids such an important document being lost. No French citizen gets the original certificate: one sends for a copy whenever necessary and receives it promptly, free of charge. I have lived in England since 1972, have paid my taxes and been a good citizen. CC, by email.
