    Uk state pension forecast

    Yes we are getting pension advice that is why I needed the forecast. The advisor is taking all our uk and Aus assets and income into account.

    Uk state pension forecast

    Thanks that did the trick! Looks like it might be worth paying to make up my missing 5 years. I will get it back in three.

    Uk state pension forecast

    Has anyone managed to get this online? I get to the stage where it needs to verify my ID but then gives me three options, I have a uk passport but can’t do the other two as I don’t have a N. Ireland driving licence or a uk address for credit check. It then says I can go back and select different questions but it just gives me the same three options. I will ring them but if anyone has managed a work around it will help. Don’t want to resort to snail mail if. I can help it.

    My visa but partner works

    Not quite true it will depend on the visa.
  5. Is it the actual container or space on the ship? I know we had several options for the ship, some faster than others at different prices. They did not tell us this but I found out and asked to see the shipping route options, they had us on the cheapest one. We paid extra and got a better, faster route.

    Most enduring international chocolate bar

    I actually prefer Australian Cadbury as it isn’t as sweet. Prefer dark chocolate and I do like Lindt. chocolate truffles with lots of rum or chocolate coated gingers are my stand outs. dark choc liquorice bullets are my cheap treat.
  7. Have they taken the application fee? If they have consider it lodged. The e mail will come eventually, check your spam folder too.

    Citizenship Application: Expired police certificates

    You only need an overseas police check if you spent a total of 12 months in that country AFTER getting PR. So if you haven’t been back since you should be fine. Of course they do reserve the right to ask ……

    Best advice for bring partner to Aus ASAP?

    As Paul said a consultation about possible strategies would be money well spent. You didn’t , for example mention the prospective marriage visa.
  10. Yup always go for bigger doona/ duvet. Less fighting!
  11. Ladies clothing is fine. Do pack shoes separate as they do sometimes check them. So I actually listed “clothing (no shoes)” on those boxes. Do list valuable items separately. Use the list to do valuations for insurance too.

    I think I would be unhappy in a soulless suburb anywhere. I love where I live in the Adelaide hills and I love my holidays in Asia, plenty of culture there. I do miss Uk and Europe but when I went back I missed Aus!

    Interstate Relocation for Job?

    Knowing the current regulations won’t help you in 6 months time as things change on a daily basis sometimes. I would hope that by then interstate restrictions will be either gone or less severe. If you are fully vaccinated with a valid reason like re locating for work then by then it should be fine, and if not then the employer will understand. If you want the job and you want to move then go for it, if you are using COVID as a reason not to then maybe you don’t really want to go.
  14. Yeah and if it feels a bit loose either shrink it or get a mattress topper. Lots of places sell them. Interestingly I last bought some sheets for our spare bed from k mart, really good quality and high thread count and a lot cheaper than the Sheridan ones I bought for our bed! In fact they are even better after washing so am going to get another set. They have decent ones in spotlight too, just be careful to check the fabric and the thread count.
  15. I’m confused has the 820 been granted or is he on a BVB pending the grant. Can’t have both.
