We welcomed Jo Root, National Policy Manager of the Council of the Ageing (COTA), and Paul Flint, Executive Director, ACT, COTA, to our April meeting at the Dickson TraJo Root, National Policy Managerdies Club.

Jo spoke to the meeting on the topic “Where to from here on the Age Pension?”. She noted that 70% of retirees rely on the Age Pension as a significant component of their income, and 60% are on the full Age Pension.
