Most of the assistants forget to give you the right forms as they don't know how to do it either  ..

and as every letter you send in now goes through a central sorting office in Brest and takes a minimum of 1 month to be proccesed it just stretches the delays .. Even if you give up your paperwork in say The office of the CAF in St Brieuc and the receptionist accepts it , it will be sent to the sorting office in Brest ..

hello again pushkin

i do not  argue this point ,that you have just succsefully carried out yet another claim for someone.

i do believe you are slightly missing the point,there has been no problems with the filling in of the forms.the problem starts after approx 3 months when you phone to find out if your claim is proceeding well this is when the bombshell hits,sorry we seem to have misplaced,or not recieved any application from you. [ rsi ] we will send you out another form.the first application was recorded delivery,for rsi

this means nothing,anyway new forms arrive and are duly filled in,signed and returned to rsi. recorded delivery. after 3 days phoned them ,have you recieve my forms,the reply yes.great stuff then a few weeks later more information required this also forwarded,2 weeks go by and a letter arrives we are still waiting for the information asked for.okay time for the assistant social to do her worst.after all everything has been covered by her.im sorry they must have mislaid them ,we will have to photocopy and send them again.now 5 months gone and still no action.and this nonsense just goes on and on ,i can only assume until we say bugger it and do not bother.obviousley whoever you are dealing with is doing their job correctly.but believe me there are hundreds of ex pats out there who are absolutely sickened by this blatant behaviour by the rsi and also caf. you know i really really try and avoid the racism word.but as you say if the procedure is so simple why are we not getting the results we deserve.and as for the social filling out the forms are you suggesting that these people can not do their job correctly,if this is the case,then we really have nowhere to go.just a  point to add what duke said,strangely my social worker has been excellent

but keeps hitting her head against a brick wall with both rsi/caf.lately perhaps the last 2 weeks or so i have been finding it rather difficult to get any contact from here.which has not been the case at all.

i do think something is wrong but as the assistant social should know what she is doing i do not know what is the problem and all papers were completed by her and she is know stuck it is like someone has warned her off and to stop the help

hi agente securite.

thank god there is someone out there that will share their experience with caf/rsi.

and yes i can only agree with you 100 %.actually the 3 month trend by both caf and rsi

SORRY we have lost your application ,please re,apply appears to be rife now with them.

we must have paid well over 300 euros over the years sending information to both rsi and caf

by recorded delivery,but still these arragant people argue the fact.as for the social some are brilliant

but when they start saying i can do no more what chance do we have. as for the mediateur,is there one ive never spoken to a real person.only the very rare e mail saying i will send them a letter again.

and as for the carte vitale .2 months back rsi stopped it.my wife arrived at thepharmacy ,only to be told sorry you will have to pay.

now firstly we are talking life saving medication here.and all the social could say was if you need the meds go to the hospital.which actually happened that very night [ heart attack ]

but once again thank god for the cardiology team at guingamp saved my life for the seond time.

its a shame that with such a brilliant dedicated hospital care in france.that the disracefull

follow up help needed.ie rsi caf.is so shamefull.and yes i still stand by my earlier post that this would not happen if we were fench.
