Has anyone any experience of sending certified copies of the LPA to the Pensions Service? My dad has recently entered a care home and I have spoken to someone at the Pensions Service who insisted that they needed to see the original document. However, a representative of Age UK has told me that I can take it into my local jobcentre(where I work) get it photocopied and certified as a true copy by a colleague and this should be sufficient. I know that we do this for birth/marriage certificates etc. I am very reluctant to send the original as I know from experience that post does get lost/mislaid even when sent recorded or registered.
