Age pensioners and superannuation
MetadataShow full item record
The Older Persons Advisory Committee has expressed great concern at the erosion of indexation benefits for age pensioners. The discussion will be greatly enhanced by releasing current statistics which show a) that households headed by an older person (aged 65 or over) have less income than households headed by younger people and b) the number of age pensioners in Australia has declined and the proportion of Gross Domestic Product spent on age pensions has declined.
