YEI has been researching savings and benefits for South African seniors for over ten years.  

But never before has it become so important to save where we can, because we are now being squeezed left, right and centre with increases in the cost of VAT, fuel, electricity, water, rates, groceries and other daily necessities.

What can we do to relieve some of this pressure?
Top of mind – don’t forget to give yourself permission to play!  Happy and joyful pursuits are what make us feel truly alive, engaged and connected, and importantly, are a great reliever of pressure.

YEI looked at a diverse selection of savings and benefits currently featured in the YEI Directory to see what’s on offer to South African over-60s!  Let’s support those businesses who are coming to the party in terms of offering seniors a much-needed saving in the retail as well as the “fun” areas.
