Speaking with the Dead
Typical German Officialdom, Thoroughness or Conscientiousness
Germans are famous for their thoroughness and love of detail which inevitably leads to more redtape and officialdom. Neverthelss, I believe the following letter shows that justice is still an issue in Germany. You don´t lose your right / your money even if you live on benefits in a dishonest world deep in corruption till your death is certified officially.
Dear Mr Dead
Your social security benefits granted in accordance with article 40 paragrah 2 of the code of social law have been now temporarily stopped. This applies to unemployment benefits II as of September 2015.
According to the notification at hand, you have died. The benefits temporarily stopped will be paid without delay as soon as this notification is reversed. The results of this matter will be sent to you seperately
Bremen, 14 September 2016
