Energy supplement safe!

The Australian Government has decided to abandon plans to axe the Energy Supplement, which has been stalled in the Senate. The energy supplement is worth $365 a year to single pensioners and $550 a year to pensioner couples.

The plan to get rid of the Energy Supplement, just like the plan to up the eligibility age for the Age Pension, dates back to 2015. The Government tried and tried and tried, but finally ran out of … energy.
