Hello YEI members


Engagement on the YEI platform – website, newsletters, Facebook page and  WhatsApp groups

A sincere request for assistance from YEI members.   YEI has become a relevant audience for clients who wish to reach a senior audience.   However, what we need from you, the YEI members, which is the ticket to YEI’s sustainability, is engagement.

We need you to engage with posts on the YEI website, newsletter, and Facebook page.  We need you to comment, enquire, book, recommend, like, love, share with your friends and family – on all the articles, services, products and offers that YEI clients offer you. 

So please, please – make it your mission to engage when you see the YEI newsletter or see a Facebook post.  This will support YEI hugely and it takes a moment of your time, doesn’t cost anything and is quick and simple.  Just one like, love or comment makes a huge difference to YEI. Tag your friends on posts that you think they may enjoy or will interest them.    We know you love it, because you tell us!  But we need you to show you love it or like it! 

Thank you all for your support over the years.  And remember, comment, share, tag, like, love 😊

    Please advise SASSA that they need tp have an option on the website where Beneficiaries may inform them of changes to their income.
    My Living Annuity was reduced by R500 last April and I have had no one interested in helping me at SASSA. So instead of being on a higher grant, I have received R 1,233.26 instead of R 1,733.26 since April 2022. This income is going down by another R 350 this April.
