Spring brings change and change keeps us on our toes! Many of you have been asking if we can highlight new advertisers as and when they come on board. Our talented creatives have come up with the following – please go to the homepage of the website ( (log in first!) and then click on the left bottom banner. Let us know if you like this new development!

YEI will be showcased at The Retirement Expo 2012 in Johannesburg. If you are a Gauteng resident, do come along and say “hello”. Why not try your luck to win one of five double tickets on offer to the Expo?! And tell all your family and friends about our amazing competition being run in conjunction with the Expo. A whopping 16 prizes up for grabs – a BIG thank you to the sponsors!

As part of the Retirement Expo, YEI will be featured daily on the Jenny Cryws-Williams afternoon show on Radio 702 in the week of 22-26 October.
Again – nice prizes on offer! Have a listen!

The YEI News Column congratulates the winners of our competitions and updates you on snippets of useful and interesting information, such as “Eligible for a rates rebate?”, and half-price theatre tickets . We also introduce the “YEI chuckle of the month”. This month’s chuckle is highly recommended – click here to take a look! Remember to log in first.

Nedbank, Auto and General and YEI all have something in common this month. We are all concerned about the safety – online and at home – of our boomers, seniors and retirees. Nedbank speaks about online fraud and their latest initiative in internet banking security. Auto and General give you tips on how to protect your home. YEI fills you in on a new online shopping scam! All worth a read, and a comment, especially if you have fallen victim to any of these calamities.

There’s something for everyone in this month’s e-Newsletter – read the final chapter on a retiree who has achieved his dream, come and have a chuckle and a comment on “Fifty-one shades of grey”. Is it time for a woman to take the reins? And get to know your retrenchment rights. Plus more tickets are up for grabs at Theatre on the Bay.

Please spread the YEI word to your friends, family and your local businesses. Do tell them about the FREE company listing option on YEI. Lets build YEI together, because …. YOU’VE EARNED IT!

Until next time…

Kind regards,
Marilyn and the YEI Team
