Pension complaint from Dallas, Texas

Saturday, November 16, 2019

Dear Editor,

Recently I received an email from the Treasury Pension Department telling me that, because the bank made an error and wrote the wrong name on my pension check, they will be sending the October pension check in November, along with the November check. The inconveniences caused by this are many.

I wrote and asked if they could correct it and send the check, but the answer was substantially the same: they will send the check in November, along with the November check.

For years the Treasury has faithfully sent that check to me, here in Dallas, TX, so this abrupt change in pattern is painful yes, but also cause for question. Writing a new check with the correct name is not like surgery.

That error must have been discovered by the 17th of October, giving enough time to correct the error and send the check by the 20th October, say.

The explanation given really does not make sense.

The problem is that someone here in Dallas has been making strenuous efforts to slow the delivery of the checks also, over a period of months.

So then, the message from the Treasury Department caused me to wonder. One thing I have seen is that these people – the ones here (in Dallas) — wish to operate in the dark, and a second thing is that they are past masters at deception.

Ronald Lewis,
Dallas TX, 75216
