Parents On A Pension

on Oct 15, 2015 @ 09:16 pm

Are your parents on a pension, and are you worried about them? Some pensioneers may not have an adequate income because of their job or if in fact they ever did work. If you see a parent struggling with food issues etc. would you help them or take them in? I would like to thing that in most cases, the answwer would be yes.

I am not at the moment but I do worry about this for the future. I would definitely take my parents in. They have done so much for me.

My mom is on a pension and now so am I. We actually have had the conversation and are planning on moving in together in 2 years when my husband retires. We will be moving back to where she is living which is where I grew up. I would never see my mom do without because she has done so much for me.

My parents live with me- they've done so much that I gladly took them in.

I would definitely be there to return the favour to the 2 wonderful people that raised me

My mom's mom passed away when I was 12, so they sold her place and their place, and have been mortgage free for...24 years now.

My dad retired at 55, 13 years ago, and still makes more a year than I do retired (and brags about it). Government workers have good benefits that way!

I would set my mom up in a retirement community, but my dad isn't very nice, so I'd feel torn as to whether or not I would help him (I probably would, but to a certain extent).

I certainly couldn't help them financially as they are in a much better position than I am.

I worry about my future and if anything (i.e. pensions) will be there in 30 years.

Both my parents are gone but,I'm retired and on a pension so,thank Heaven for Daughters.I have one Daughter and she is always saying to me,As long as I'm alive Mom,you are never going into a Home.That is so comforting to know and takes a lot of stress off one's mind.Guess I've been bless with such a caring and loving Daughter.
