With a federal election not far away, National Seniors Australia (the peak consumer group for older Australians), is hosting a free webinar titled, “Is the pension fair?” on Wednesday 8th December.
Panellists include Dr David Knox, Dr Deborah Ralston and Noel Whittaker, with National SeniorsChief Advocate, Ian Henschke, chairing the event.
“This is a rare chance to hear three of Australia’s leading experts on the ins and outs of our retirement system. We’ll look at the big questions: Should we have a universal pension? Why do we penalise pensioners who work? Is the pension fair?” said Mr Henschke.
“People can expect a robust and informative discussion on the adequacy of the pension and how we can improve the system as a whole.”
“I’m excited to hear from Dr Knox, Dr Ralston and Noel Whittaker – three people who’ve demonstrated over decades a commitment to improving outcomes for all older Australians.”
The webinar will also offer a platform for people to have their say. “We want to make sure retirees are kept up to date about the key issues, particularly in the lead-up to the next budget and federal election,” said Mr Henschke.
“It’s a great opportunity to give your views and join our campaigns to lobby the government and drive real change. Together, we can make a difference. Remember you have to speak to get heard.”
Registration is free and open to members and non-members. Event registration: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/is-the-pension-fair-tickets-206900343497
