    In the GFC the SIS regs that impose min pensions were cut so the person could reduce super draw down. Also non commutable tris pension rule changes could assist some.

    Also Centrelink age pension assessments likely need to revalue reduced super balances so those impacted can access Centrelink age pension benefits asap

    Probably him today. Haircuts and a shave at 1.5m just don't cut it.

    The same wish to you @willair.

    Not one bit of the next 12 months or more will be the least bit pleasant. However, if my grandparents got through WW1, the Spanish flu, the Depression and WW11, as I am a product of their tenacity, I'm going to bloody well give it my best shot.

    And on that note, having done a quick assessment, I reckon I can last about 18 months. After that things get tragic quickly.

    At 18 months, those coffee beans are going to be very stale, and not very aromatic.

    Not from coronavirus - but from environmental factors.

    Oh the beans will be used well before then. I was including jars of Maccona and I checked the Best By date before I bought them.

    Bloody Swiss declaring coffee was no longer considered an essential and depleted their emergency supplies. Irks me no end.
