Communicating with the “dead”


An unemployed German mechanic has been told his [unemployment] money has been stopped because he’s dead.

The news came as a surprise to Wolfgang Berlt, 59, from the Saxony region, who had contacted social services to find out why his benefits had been stopped. Mr Berlt said: “My wife got a letter from social services explaining why they were not paying me. Neither of us could believe it. But they were a bit surprised at the benefits office when I rang them up and said: “Hello, I’m dead, but I’d like my benefits back please”.
