Pension Windfall

My mother is one of the lucky government pensioners who received a cash bonus this month. My mother asked me what she should do with it. I told her to buy gold. That's the best.

Although my mother has not been medically fit these past few months, she is a government pensioner and qualifies for free health care, so she doesn't need to use her any of her savings. Besides, she has three children and we are her "insurance".

I believe that like most elderly people, they feel more secure knowing they have cash in the bank. If my mother has gold, she would definitely feel happier, even if it was bought with her own money. LOL
