OLDER Australians should be allowed to earn more before losing any age pension, according to National Seniors Australia. The organisation is calling on the government to raise the work bonus.
“BETTER than a slap in the face with a wet fish but not enough to make a difference”. That’s how one reader of The Senior described the age pension increase.
AGE pensioners will receive a modest increase to their pension from March 20 with rates rising by $13.20 to $907.60 per fortnight for singles and $9.90 to $684.10 for each member of a couple.
