Seniors should get more money.
Single seniors aged 65 or more receives a maximum of $1,789.36 in Canada a month.
Old age security maximum is $613.53 and CPP maximum is $1,175.83 a month.
But most Canadians don’t receive the maximum pension.
Rent in Langley averages $1,000 a month. Rent, bills, and groceries keep going up. After rent, bills, and groceries, there isn’t much left over so they are living cheque to cheque.
That is why seniors should get more money.
