Farewell Twenty-Tens!
Welcome to the
Decade of Healthy Ageing,
as proclaimed by the World Health Organisation.

In its 10 years online, YEI has covered retirement topics and searched for relevant pensioner deals for you in every possible form.  We have been lucky enough to publish thousands of articles covering a vast number of retirement topics, still relevant and resonating with most of us. 

From retirement age to retirement accommodation.  From health issues to grandma’s natural remedies, from downsizing to work-from-home jobs for SA pensioners.  And everything in between!  It has been a wonderful, sometimes weird decade!  We have run retirement workshops, showcased YEI at Retirement Expos, interviewed John Cleese and taken a group of pensioners to a Kirstenbosch book launch!
And so much more…..

What a journey!

So here goes, YEI’s most-read and favourite articles:
