Greetings

Capetonians - we look forward to meeting you at the very first Retirement & Lifestyle Expo which takes place at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West from the 6 – 8 March 2015. Do come past the YEI stand and say “hello”!

We have great pleasure in announcing that You’ve Earned It was a runner-up in the 2014 SA Blog Awards in the “Business” category. See our “badge” on the YEI website! Thanks to all who took the time and trouble to vote for YEI – much appreciated!

You’ve Earned It spoke about pensioner discounts on CliffCentral's "The Laws of Life" show with Garry Hertzberg and Kate Pater on 10 February 2015. Listen to the podcast here - YEI's contribution is about 45 minutes into the show.

Tsogo Sun’s Durban Holiday Offer is seriously good! It is specifically for seniors aged 63+ - receive 50% off the best available rate, and it includes other benefits. Click here to find out more.

Don’t miss out on Mediclinic Senior’s luxury retreats taking place in April 2015 (Gauteng) and October 2015 (Western Cape).

For those aspiring writers amongst us – here’s an amazing short story competition where the first prize is R10 000!

A backpat to SASSA who have taken the time to respond to some queries from YEI readers on the income, assets and threshold limits of people applying for social assistance. This brings clarity to a somewhat previously grey area. Please click here to read more.

Happy Reading! Until the next time…

Kind regards,

Marilyn and the YEI Team
