National Seniors Australia will host a free webinar titled, Is the pension fair? on Wednesday 8 December.
Panellists include Dr David Knox, Dr Deborah Ralston and Noel Whittaker, with National Seniors Chief Advocate, Ian Henschke (pictured) to chair the online 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,” he said.
“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 government and drive real change. Together, we can make a difference. Remember you have to speak to get heard.”
