Help for wife on passing away

Good for your wife my 2 private pensions would not give choices to spouses, and with the UK gov pension benefits taken away for my Thai wife I decided to improvised by buying land and building some apartments which my wife rents, so that will be her income and our Thai son will make sure my wife OK along with my UK family. 

 

Good to know that you have done all possible to care for your wife after your passing. Unfortunately too many expats do nothing.

 

Hopefully your UK family will come up trumps if needs be.

 

I have come across several instances in the past 2/3 years, when the husband has died in the UK, and his family have quite rightly stopped his pensions, but maliciously informed the pension companies that he was not married. One UK family went so far as to specifically mention on his death certificate that he was a widower, and gave the name and date of death of his former UK wife!

 

In 3 of these situations, one going back 6 years, I was able to get the pensions for the widow, but trying to prove that they were indeed married, despite the marriage certificates, was no easy task, with the reputation that Thailand has for false documentation.

Yeah it's so nice to hear someone like yourself helps these Thai wives with problems and getting them help.

There are some nasty money grabbing jealous UK families in UK, fortunately my Thai wife was with me and my family in UK for 2.1/2 years while I was arranging my early retirement, selling up etc.

They come every year to see us here in Thailand, I could probably get myself to go back UK for a few days to the family 😂 but would not go without my wife and it's too much of hassle for her to arrange a visa.
