'Deeksie' and Kaye present Mind Your Own Retirement Episode 17

More than two-thirds of YourLifeChoices members receive either a full or part Age Pension. Which means dealing with Centrelink. Which often means frustration. In today’s episode of Mind Your Own Retirement, Centrelink general manager Hank Jongen tells Kaye and Deeksie how customers can avoid frustrating phone wait times and visits. This is advice from the top that you must hear.

Nicholas Morley is on a crusade to ease suffering through the use of medical cannabis oil. He explains the oil it can help and why it is not more widely available. Over-55s who suffer from arthritis, cancer, chronic pain and depression will learn much from this man on a mission.

And Leon recounts his trip through Ontario, talking all things Toronto, and how he saw Niagara Falls from every possible angle, as well as sharing the place where you can find the real Canada.

    Why don't you put an interesting article, such as cutting waiting times at Centrelink, into a written report so those among us who can't hear the podcast can share in the information?

    Send an email to the Federal Minister - include the dates and length of time you waited before you gave up.

    You should have a very indignant Senior Centrelink Supervisor on the line to you within a day or so - irritably sorting out your issue. Enjoy the disbelief dripping from their voice because they have been allocated such a lowly job - dealing directly with one of the peasants,
    Ignore the indignation and smile- to yourself.

    You're not missing anything by not having Podcast. It is the same mindless drivel that you get on any radio station and how long this goes on for before you get the actual message I don't know because I turned it off. What a waste of time.

    Hank Jongen should be sacked - costs too much ($7 Mil) and delivers f... all results. Every interview with him should be used to ask him to QUIT.

    I agree with you George. Hank is a useless piece of sand shovelling ,denying overpaid Public servant..
    And this life choices is two things.
    A platform for advertising.
    And a platform for communists. I'm not happy what Abbott did to my pension. But my problems don't count. As long as the Reds under the Beds can abuse the Bosses.
    Over the idiots. I will delete myself from this site.
    Good luck to you Sir.
    The only man on here with intelligence.
