Pensioners are hoarding cash?
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.

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".
PM Gillard has overcome illness to attend a gender-equality event in New York, alongside US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But an upset stomach forced her to cancel official events earlier in the day.
Is the Liberal party structure falling apart behind the scenes? Jason Morrison looks at the tussle within the party over donations and fundings that have come to light. Is the party backroom letting down the public.
