Dear Ministry of Social Development,

I would like to know, is it lawful for Work and Income to put into the SWIFT system, your Christian name as a surname, when your registered infancy document held with the Department of Internal Affairs, managed by the Registrar General, shows nothing on the record. The law for those born before the year 1972, is that there is no requirement for you to have a surname, as stipulated on the standard forms of the Department of Internal Affairs issued to register your infants during that time. So if you receive a birth document which shows a surname upon it, consider it an error.

Do Government agencies have the jurisidiction to make changes to ones name, without your consent. Does Work and Income have the authority to write letters, to a name you do not recognise. Do they have the right to address you, by stating your first name and then using your Christian name as your last name, family name, or surname.

When you ask them to amend the error in the SWIFT system and they write letters about everything except what you have asked for. Is that indicating ignorance or fraud.
Yours faithfully,

Sovereign De Jure.
