 Issue 42: October 2014




The International Day of Older Persons is celebrated annually on October 1 to recognize the contributions of older persons and to examine issues that affect their lives. It is also a day to appreciate the contributions that older people make to society. With this in mind, we highlight the following YEI advertisers who have seniors’ interests at heart.

  • October is ABSA Seniors Month. ABSA invites you to join the savings challenge today. Whether you are saving for a grandson’s PhD or something else that is special or you wish to earn greater interest with a Fixed Deposit Account, let ABSA help you save today. Click here to find out more.
  • The Mediclinic Senior Programme offers you great benefits e.g. a 24-hour Helpline where a nursing practitioner will answer your health related questions, Health Screening Clinics etc. To register free of charge on the Mediclinic Senior Programme, click here.

Every month, YEI sources many new businesses who offer pensioner discounts, savings and benefits. These are all featured in the YEI Discounts and Benefits Directory. Why not take a journey through the world of senior savings?

We regularly receive emails from YEI readers - the one we enjoyed the most this month was from the reader who called YEIThe Information Wizard”!!

On that note - be well, be safe, be happy! Until next month...

Kind regards,
Marilyn and the YEI Team
