Who knows? MiL’s (also surname T) first name comes after her husband’s but he hasn’t had a letter yet. On the other hand, she was born 3 months before him.
OH has the same initials as his mum. Still waiting!

Yes my hubby would get his letter some weeks before me and his birthday was only 9 days before mine so maybe it is done by birthdays

Have heard nothing so far.
I get cross about the £10 Christmas bonus, what a waste of space: it would be better just to increase the annual pension by £10 and spread it over the year.
