THE authorities should look into increasing the pension amount for senior citizens from $250 to $500 per month. There are about 27,000 senior citizens receiving pension and the increase will lead to a payment of B$1.35M.
It is worth the money because these are people who have contributed so much in the past.
Brunei pensioners are generally passionate about their country. Most of their pension money is spent in Brunei. This will only benefit our businesses.
The authorities should consider this urgently so that the warga emas can have a better quality of life.
