Basically, a family members partner had his pension paid int omy bank until they sorted there own bank account, this was fine in the beginning but it's been going on for a good year now with no sign of them even trying for an account of their own.

So does anyone know how i can cancel this payment being paid into my account?

Thanks

why not just speak to your family member?

I have done many times, and i keep getting fobbed off, i told them yesterday they had a month to sort themselves out, if payment goes into my bank next month i wont be withdrawing it.

I would just like to cancel it, then they have no choice.

Why don't you go with them into the bank and open an account for them?

You can always cancel a standing order simply by getting in touch with your bank.

Hi Suze, for me to go into the bank with them will put me out, the same it dies withdrawing there money for them, i spoke my bank yesterday about how to cancel and they tell me that i will have to ring the pension company which i cannot do.

I would tell them you are not giving the money over until you see proof they have opened a bank account and the money is going to be paid into it

Oh, all you can realy do is try to get them to ring the pensions company in that case.

But personally I would take them to the bank to open up a bank account of their own, I know you said it puts you out as does withdrawing the money for them, but at least you will only have to do it once and never again.

To be honest, I dont think you can stop money coming IN to your account as no authorisation is needed for the person paying money in.

Thats why any tom, dick or harry can jump into any branch and pay you some money.

Infact, i'll help you out. I'll PM you my sort code and account number and they can just pay into mine.

No guarantee that they will get it back though. That'll teach them :thumbsup:

Or refuse to release the funds until they sort out the bank account? Its your account!

How about googling 'money laundering' and seeing if anything applies there - might just put the wind up em!

seriously tho - it might have an effect on you if you have to declare you bank details for benefits or some kind of security check. It would just be a pain in the a*** to have to explain it all. Perhaps there is a reason they cant/wont open an account of their own??? or have I been watching too much Jeremy Kyle and Trisha again!

Maybe you could hand over the pension money to the family member, but always later than when they ask for it and as late as you can get away with, & tell them that you are finding it harder & harder to get to the bank to withdraw the money so they either have to put up with the (increasingly) late payments or get their own account.

I'm sure that after a few months of being seriously messed about they'll be happier to open their own account.

Apples - also just a warning that he may be using you to commit some form of benefit fraud (by not declaring the pension payments) and from a legal perspective you may get sucked into any future enquiry since you knowingly allowed him to use your account. Not saying thats the case here, but please keep this in mind .

Also very odd that they are not using your family members account assuming they have one - another reason to think that something odd is happening here...
