Our country has been built on the hard work of our senior Australians. Seniors have made a tremendous contribution to the life and prosperity we enjoy today.
We owe a duty as a nation to ensure that every older Australian in our community can age well – with the respect, support and opportunities they deserve.
Recently my team has updated my Pensioners and Seniors information kit for 2020. It contains helpful information about local services and pension entitlements, available to our older Australians, and how to access them.
You can order a copy to be posted out to you,or you can download it at the link below.
Labor has fought hard to protect older Australians from the Coalition’s attacks on Medicare and hospitals, unfair cuts and changes to the pension, and from their plans to increase the pension age to 70.
Labor pressured the Liberal/National Government to review Age Pension deeming rates to more accurately reflect the low interest rates of current economic conditions.
Labor will continue to stand up for older Australians because we all deserve to be able to age with respect and dignity.
