The fact of the matter is that the DWP agency network is catering mainly towards citizens from the United States of America and the United Kingdom, two first world countries ranked among the so-called Group of 7 nations, and meaning that they are part of seven of the world’s strongest economies. But as progress is made, it is only a matter of time before global citizens, meaning men and women of all ages from around the world that are not part of this group will be able to contact sky.
The rest of this article will simply be following on this positive opening and on what was already highlighted in its heading. If you are currently not collecting a pension, then you should be connecting with the relevant authorities to find out if you are eligible for a state pension on a monthly basis going forward. The same will apply if you have been disabled for most of your life to the degree that it has precluded you from conventional work opportunities.
Speaking of which, if you are currently unemployed, particularly if you have been in this predicament for months, an unacceptably long period of time, it must be said, then you need to get in touch with sky or your relevant local authority or state, or national agency governing labor issues. You feel this the most; in this day and age, no-one can afford to be without work. It is not even about the money. It is all about your self-worth and how you perceive yourself in the world.
Those of you who have been working for most of your life but may not have been able to contribute towards privately owned income and investment vehicles or pension schemes due to compressed wages and other budget priorities will soon find that a state or government pension is due to you. Somewhere down the line, you have been contributing, indirectly or directly, to the state’s coffers. At retirement age, or laid off from work, it is now time to collect what is due to you.
The above motivation can only be generalized at this time, but contact sky or your local authority to find out immediately where you stand. And whether this has to do with qualifying criteria for a pension, disability or unemployment grant, if you are lacking, your contact will, or should, be informing you of what needs to be done to fill the gaps if you will. In closing this article, let us make an even stronger motivation on the side of unemployment/employment.
As an unemployed person, do not be preoccupied solely with collecting on the dole. Prioritize the important matter of getting a job. With the correct checks and balances in place, on both sides, you will find that your agency or government authority will be assisting you in this regard.
