Just to bring a little bit of thread drift, if I may, but on the general thing of entitlement. At the start of this month, I was told via e-mail, that I was required to provide four different types of proof of ownership of where I live. Due to the fact that I can claim an allowance equal to two round trips, from my place of work to home every month, total about £120. Now I pay full taxes at home, and full food and accomodation rates at work(Including council tax). But because I covered up all the private information (Account details, Council tax amounts, Amount outstanding on morgage, Balance outstanding on credit card.) what I had supplied wasn't good enough, and unless I supply the full non censored, I lose my allowence! On asking about the scurity of the information, I was told, "It will be kept in a locked safe" Access of which is open to at least 30 people, this make me feel like my personal data is really safe!!
If I bugger up a travel claim, I could lose my job, and my pension, the Millitary really jump on these things. All for as little as £1.00, A great feeling after 23 years of service.
