Letters: A Health Card trap, Chesser comparison and Cromwell cheer

Members write to outline an indexation problem with the Commonwealth Senior's HealthCare Card, ask about CDS and compare some gold minnows.

I am a single 78-year-old woman retired on a "Life Pension" with Government Employees Superannuation, allocated to me late 1984 – this type of pension was phased out in 1985/86 – and my pension is indexed twice yearly.

The Commonwealth Senior’s HealthCare Card has not been indexed since it was introduced about 12 years ago.
