Interview with Mr. Ebrahim Ryland
Today, we welcomed Mr. Ebrahim Ryland into the studio to talk about pensions for the elderly. He talked about how an Older Persons' or SASSA grant can help the elderly get money for retirement. He talked bout how to qualify, and how best to use the grant. According to Mr. Ryland, an older person's grant is a type of social assistance for those who have reached the age of retirement. In order to qualify, one has to pass a Means Test, or the process of evaluating the income and assets of the applicant. Whether you pass the means test or not depends on the consistency of one's income and security of one's assets. But do not worry about qualifying if you are unemployed; some people can if they fall in the parameters of the means test! If you would like to find out more, you can call Mr. Ryland at his office in Cape Town at 0214690235.
