Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today encouraged local seniors to contact his office to reserve a free copy of a 2019 diary to help them navigate legal issues that arise in the year ahead.
“These popular diaries are produced each year by Legal Aid and they are jam packed with useful tips for seniors about their rights and responsibilities,” said Stuart Ayres.
“It explains everything from powers of attorney to what gifts seniors can give without affecting their pension and how to access many of the Government’s cost of living initiatives.”
This year’s diary includes a chapter on legal issues that are important for older Aboriginal people, like planning for funerals and sorry business, and using a will as a way of passing on cultural knowledge.
The 2019 Legal Topics for Older People Diary will soon be available from my office.
“As limited number of diaries will be available I encourage you to call my office now on 02 47228660 to reserve your copy,” added Stuart Ayres.
