Can I ask what steps people have taken to access pension? ie. When was a good time to submit forms? How long did this take? Any ideas to smooth the process? Do you have a named person to deal with? How accurate was pension forecast to actual pension payout? Sorry about the pinikety questions, but excitement is kicking in. I intend to go on Aug 31st 2016 and would like to know how to manage the timescales please. Resignation already submitted.
