In July 2021, many pensioners were reassessed for Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) and summarily penalized. I was one of those pensioners who also just "happens" to be attending university full-time.
Last summer of 2020, I was unable to find employment and applied for student assistance. Now, however, someone has chosen to ignore the part of the information stating that I am a mature student and although the provincial government did top me up initially, I am now having to again prove my eligibility as are many other seniors.
Why has nothing changed? I know that I am not the only senior who has this problem but can someone in authority please help us.
We are in danger of being homeless and for why - so someone in government can feel powerful?
