No Job is Over Till the Paperwork is Done

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I spent half of my day trying to do the paperwork to access a retirement account that I need to start drawing from in the next month. The form they sent me was so complicated that I could not understand it so I went looking for help. First a trip to the credit union where someone filled in that part and put post it notes on other areas that looked important. Then a trip to the hospital where I worked where another section was filled out, a trip to the accountant to see what I needed to do about the tax section and another to the courthouse to see if I could find a number that the hospital didn't have. (They didn't have it either.) Once I got home I called the company with the account and someone walked me through the rest. I am crossing my fingers that I got everything right. I don't know why they make forms so complicated! At least I didn't stress eat!!

    Everything is 'red tape'...the world has become so complicated because of lawsuits, I think. Well, you go it accomplished - let hope it is right!

    There was a time when all you had to do was retire and the company would start sending pension checks. Seems quaint now.

    Oh how I hate the paper work too. Having allot of that too since my husband passed and there is allot of things that he did not take care of and now I have to prove that I am the person that is the owner of them now.

    Forms are a pain they are too complex and badly worded. Good for you working hard on it to get it completed.

You found you were a step ahead on the stress eating too so yay to that
