    Questions I like to pose.

    When will this be implemented? Does the writer have clear information on this date?
    At 14,200 per annum is a trite on the high side, is it not?

    Able to purchase real estate?
    Does this include land for redevelopment? Or just ready to use housing?

    If so, it might be worth considering.

    Monthly Pension – how does this work out? Are there details on this? e.g. if it is a good monthly payout, it might be worth it too.

    Thank you for your comments and responses.
