Hello all!

Brand new to the boards, and I have a question regarding how long it takes to get the initial confirmation that Membership Records received my resignation letter.

I emailed my letter to them on Monday evening. (The letter was essentially a slightly modified version of Sample Resignation Letter #3.) From what I've been reading on the site, I'm supposed to get a confirmation that Membership Records received my letter; however, I've not heard anything back yet. I realize it's still very early in the process, but I figured they would have emailed me back within a day or two. So...for those of you that have emailed your resignation letters:
  • Did you get a confirmation of receipt sent back to you?
  • Did the confirmation come via email or snail mail?
  • How long did it take to get a confirmation back?

Thanks!
Matt

Hi Matt

Someone just went through the email process and posted the time line here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=52022

Maybe that gives you some idea of what they might do.

Peace

Hi, it is not an exact science! I resigned by email and received nothing at all to say that they had received my resignation. My final letter, paper, arrived after about 10 weeks. But this was 2.5 years ago in England, so I expect process to be faster now, as Brandon experienced. Sometimes you need or needed to stay on top of things, as the process does depend on individuals. But we know plenty of tricks, so get back to us if you need any but I don't think you will. Congratulations on your resignation.

I emailed last Wednesday, and just received my Confirmation of Receipt (via Snail Mail) yesterday. I'm about 2k miles from SLC in the same country. If you are in a different country it might take longer. From what I've seen all the CoR letters come via snail mail.

Hmmm. Starting to wonder whether or not they got it then. I'm also in the midwestern US, so I don't have any reason to think that mail from should be delayed.

I digitally signed my email; I wonder if that confused them?

I am sure they received it. Give it a couple of weeks more.

That is unusual. A digital signature shouldn't have confused them. I digitally signed mine. You did include a physical address, correct?

Yup, right underneath my name at the bottom of my email.

Yeah...I'm trying to be patient. My SO is reminding me that my impatience is giving them some power over me...so I'm trying not to let it bug me. It's just odd that other people (esp. within a week of when I sent mine in) got their responses back sooner.

It is a minute sample we see. Over 100,000 resignations a year, world wide, all dealt with by one little office. I never received any confirmation, as I said before. Standard advice is to wait 6 weeks before any need for concern. It is so great when it is over for folk within days, but really that is not always achieved. I know it is stressful when you want it so much but your SO is right.

Ok, little action you can take...do you know your membership number?

Ohhh, never mind, just a little trick I know to check status of your resignation. Back to patience then. It will work out. I have never ever heard of anyone who wanted to resign who was not able to get their resignation processed.

If you want to be a thorn in their side you can do what Infymus says "Be patient, but be strong and persevere. If you have not heard anything back from Membership Records in two (2) weeks, again send your resignation letter. " and just bombard them again next week.

Infymus' post: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=49589

Or just kick back and move on to other things and hopefully by 6 weeks you will get the final letter.

Just got my acknowledgement letter in the mail. I sent the resignation email for myself and my children back in January and heard nothing. It wasn't until last Wednesday when I resent it with harsher language mentioning my lawyer that I got my letter.

Excellent!

So that was the "we got your request and forwarded it on" letter or the "You're out" letter?

Peace

Ok...I think it's time for me to re-send it. I've gotten *nothing* so far, not even a confirmation of receipt...

Yeah, totally resend it. Email them a new copy every day. Mention the fact that it would be a shame to get a lawyer involved. You will have your ""we got your request and forwarded it on" letter in a week. Then keep up on them and hopefully get the congrats on being out one before too long. I am still waiting on my congrats you are out one, so let us know if you get out before me. :)
