  • RE: CF83 sent via Registered Mail aka Recorded Delivery

    Hi Geraldine, I mailed my CF83 form from Spain via Uk registered post and it was received and signed by HMRC on the 27 February 2023. I have been checking my mail weekly ever since for a non existent reply. I have now just used the online service on this website that tells me I should expect a reply in October - some 8 months after I originally wrote. I have 6 years of voluntary contributions I want to pay and I have seen one option where I can simply send a cheque - the problem is I dont own a cheque book - does anyone in 2023? I really dont know what else I can do as the phone line never answers - I tried 10x today. Its a massively underfunded system. All I can do is wait for another 5 months I guess for a reply. Kindest Stephen
