I received one from the UK in June 2016 but nothing last year or this year (Yet) .I initially tried Bangkok Bank where I have three accounts and have been a customer since 2003 .They were adamant that they were not allowed to validate my identity and suggested immigration may do it .No luck there either so ended up at an Attorneys Office and paid 3K baht for them to validate my signature .Down side of this is that my Frozen UK pension is a pittance and barely covers my weekly Wine Bill . I get an annual note from the USA for my pension which is a simple note where you just check the boxes and Sign and return in the reply Envelope .

There must be a few with their own 'Companies' e.g. to hold the land they own and so on ?
If so the Director can sign : chairman/director of limited company

Another option, the license holder of your local bar : licensee of public house

Seems just about anyone can sign - and who are they to check ?
I was born with nothing and still have most of it left

If they are not happy with your choice of Witness.......they just withhold your Pension until they are satisfied. No loss to them !

It specifically stated that they required an official company STAMP which not every one of the supposed
valid "signers "has .

You have to suss out the Witnesses that comply. For my last one 2 years ago I took it to a Blood Clinic that I used in Nong Khai where the Technician was qualified and had a Stamp. For good measure I attached a Copy of the Test that I had taken that day. That Clinic has closed but I have made an appointment with another one for later this week and will do the same. BTW I had to force 250 baht on the Technician. Do not treat this lightly the whole purpose of the exercise is to CANCEL your Pension if they can

3 years ago, My state pension stopped.After Email them, they declared I need a "Life certifcate" and can be downloaded.I was not informed before I think as they never had my address.
I Sent the form back to my daughter in UK. and her partner(at that time) countersigned it.He is a teacher
The next month I recieved my pension and 2 months arrears
I have not had another request since

Mine was a 100 Baht donation to the tea fund at the amper, not sure if they will like the handwriting or the Thai stamp I guess I will find out later as it's about to be delivered today.
