When: 11.00am Thursday, April 2, 2015

Where: Corner Elizabeth St, Martin Place, Sydney (Outside ch7 MAP)

ACOSS CEO Cassandra Goldie will today outline the peak community organisation’s Budget proposals to tighten the Age Pension assets test and reform the unfair retirement incomes system, including superannuation tax concessions.

Dr Goldie will call on the Federal Government, opposition parties and the crossbenchers to work together on making these important reforms, instead of pursing any damaging plans to reduce the Indexation of pensions, that would severely hurt struggling pensioners, sole parents and people with disabilities.
