Pensioners are hoarding cash?

Posted by: 2UE | 25 September, 2012 - 11:46 AM
How risky is it dipping into your Superannuation?

Are elderly pensioners not properly declaring their income and keeping extra earnings in cash in their homes to qualify for the pension? Stuart Bocking looks at claims of widespread rorting to obtain the pension.

Former Reserve Bank of Australia official Peter Mair has told Stuart Bocking there has been strong demand from pensioners wanting to swap cash amounts for high denomination notes, such as $100 notes, which make it easier to store large amounts of money.


Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter  

Mr Mair estimates the average pensioner couple could have up to $50,000 in undeclared $50 and $100 notes stashed in cash in their homes so they can access the pensioner discounts.

He has reportedly written to the RBA suggesting it phase out $100 and $50 notes to stop "tax avoidance".

  • Try looking in asian countries for large bundles of Aussie $100 notes.
    They are well thought of and coverted by our near neighbours
    I reckon they are smuggled out of the country
