Hello YEI members! 

This is the last month for the “YEI Pensioner of the Month” award.  Your stories of strength, helpfulness, passion, commitment, courage and love have been so inspirational to all of us!  We wish you could all win!  

Spring is a good time to get your affairs in order.  After several requests, we are featuring the popular “My Estate Planning File” again.  An immensely important document which once completed, will give you and your loved ones, peace of mind in the event of an emergency. 

National Wills Week  is from 13 – 17  September 2021.  YEI members are very fortunate though – they can get a will drawn up at no cost, any day, any week, any month with one of our partners, Proactive Wills & Estates

And on the “Spring” topic, here’s a Spring sample of senior savings and benefits!

The last 18 months has been very trying for many of us, with our immune systems taking a bit of a beating.   Inflammation is a natural immune response – one of the ways that your body heals.  But when your body overreacts, ongoing inflammation can signal or cause serious health issues. Know the signs of Chronic Inflammatory Diseases (CIDs) and take early steps to address them. 

One thing we could all do with is a good break – good for the soul and the immune system.  Take a look at four amazing staycations that truly give you bang for your buck, a great pensioner discount plus a break of note!

Happy Reading!! 

Warm regards

Marilyn and the YEI Team
