    Tough times on a pension

    DIFFICULT TIMES ON A ROTTEN PENSION




    I've been affected by the financial situation which We all are going through. Just like you, I am struggling hard to keep going.
    I only buy rotting cheese


    And dry meat


    I drink old wines.


    My car has no roof.

    My bathtub is outside.

    And my wife has nothing to wear!

    What a situation!
    But here we are still coping and struggling.
    WE MUST ENDURE
    Soon things will improve.





    WE’LL JUST HAVE TO SUFFER A LITTLE LONGER..!!

    Better than no pension at all which seems to be my future.

    My Suggestions for you:

    Work again if you can. If that doesn't give you a little security then...

    Do whatever you have to to get what you need.

    Stretch the rules, the laws

    Beg

    Steal

    Smuggle

    Be creative

    It's all legal when you are left behind or locked out of opportunity in my view. Age shouldn't keep you from jobs. It's your life and it is more important than a stupid system that leaves people behind.

    How easy is it these days to pretend you are at home getting a pension but are actually here, i'm not interested in the morality or illegality of it. If they do take away expats tax allowance if you are from the UK the pension will be instantly 20% less and never increased. Or they might give the increase but take away the allowance so minus about 17%

    Is the OP talking 'State or Private' pension? I wouldn't be here now if I'd relied solely on my state pension. In fact it'll come as a bonus in a few years time, irrespective of how much. Surely Crepitas, with the Pound getting stronger things must be looking up?

    If you upload a picture of each you already have the luxuries.

    It seems to me you are only missing a good supply of coffee.
