Font Size:

In episode 30 of Mind Your Own Retirement, Deeksie and Kaye are joined by Josh Funder from Household Capital. He says that the banks have ‘abandoned retirees’, and explains the importance of ageing at home, how reverse mortgages work, and the unique challenges faced by this generation of retirees.

He then explains to Deeksie and Kaye how Household Capital can help to double your super at retirement, allowing retirees to draw upon the value of their family home without sacrificing their super or Centrelink.

Dr. Marlene Krasovitsky, Campaign Director of EveryAGE Counts, a National coalition campaign against ageism, explains the negative impacts of ageism, including employment discrimination.

She shares her extensive knowledge from her time at the Australian Human Rights Commission where she was the Director of the National Inquiry into Employment Discrimination against older people and people with disability. Finally, she shares some simple and subtle ways we can combat ageism in our everyday lives.

Kaye shares essential information about how Centrelink may be impacted by the bushfires and what help is available to those affected. She then winds up the episode by telling us what our YourLifeChoices members want to see in 2020.
