LETTER: Treated well at UIF office

2016-02-23 06:00

I can’t agree with Pat Manwaring. I went to the UIF office in Athlone and I must say we were treated very well.

As with all government departments there are queues. But I must point out that the staff at Athlone office treated everyone with the utmost respect. At one stage they offered me a chair to sit on while waiting for the doors to open.

I was always given a date when to go in and sign and also how much I would receive that Friday (pay day).

They always put the date on the form which you fill in for your next sign date. I must thank the staff of the Athone UIF office for a job well done.
