Anonymous Dordogne, I think you ought to try again but with the help of someone who speaks French. Is there a local anglo integration type organisation near you or search for an English speaking French person who provides help. There is several in Brittany but I don't know about your area. Perhaps a topic on here might produce results.

They could take what they like when I'm gone.  I'll no longer need it.

I'm sorry I can't answer your question but I wish you the very best of luck.  I tried to get the ASPA a couple of years ago and met an uphill struggle all the way.  I kept being sent the wrong forms by the office in charge and then getting such a runaround I gave up.  I think that is their stratedgy.  It was clear by their published requirements that I was (and still am) way below their income level to qualify but unless a person is a very fluent French speaker and used to the usual bureaucratic runaround you don't stand much chance.
