Re: US Soc. Security Questionnaire

Be Thankful that the US Social Security payment didn't get "Frozen" (YET) As my UK pension was some years ago .My contention is that if you have earned a pension it should be paid no matter where you choose to retire .

Re: Which bank has the best currency rate?

Government Bank does not charge 15% on savings interest as does Bangkok Bank . Bad enough that the interest rate is so low and then they tax the paltry interest .
