Increase Pension Payments to Seniors in Need of Financial Assistance

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Currently, the government provides many investment tools to help employees post-retirement. The average money per annum that a citizen must spend to provide an adequate lifestyle of only basic needs (exclusive luxury) is $18,000, while the average senior only lives on $17,000.  However, nearly 12.5% of senior citizens (which equates to 5 million seniors) are currently living in poverty which means way under the average amount to lead a basic lifestyle. Seniors require many medications and additional items that are not covered by OHIP and they simply lack the money to do. The government should increase funding for senior citizens who are in need for financial assistance and provide retail cuts on the pricing of necessity products for senior citizens.
