    Hi Chickiwi,
    I forgot to say that you get half of that 66%, that is 33% plus the living alone allowance.
    So the actual fact is that every Superannuitant receives "33% of the average working mans wage".
    The governments in power very neatly forget to state this fact when they are speaking and it makes it sound like they are paying us heaps, when in fact they are not.

    Looks like just another scam, we’re not all stupid.

    Cookybaby, I am sure you are right.
    Out of curiosity I tried but it comes up as being unavailable so maybe GrownUps clicked on before we did.

    Chickiwi, Sorry, no statistics, just facts. I’d hate you to think when you retired that you are going to get more than you actually will.

    Sorry Moviated, because the page wouldn’t open when I tried I thought it was a ‘bung’ site. I’m afraid it’s a bit late for me though having already passed the 65 a few years back.
    the Stuff site has some good things on it.

    Not a problem and of course it’s never to late 🙂
    This is a really good community online.

    Well, moviated,
    Funny that you say it is not a scam, but you also posted the site on more than one thread in this forum, and you do not specify your gender. Are you afraid to?

    I did manage to get into the site earlier to check it out, didn’t like what I saw, it must be down now as neither Firefox nor Safari would open it.

    Further to my comment, the site is an American one and it ends in .com not .co.nz
