Anzac Day 2013 is a time to again
remember those who have served
our country in the Defence Forces
-- many of whom died on the
battlefield or subsequently.
As Australians we are grateful for
the sacrifices made both by those
who have gone before as well as the
families left behind.
Legacy was established nearly 90
years ago to help bridge the gap left
when the digger was no longer there
to support his family.
While the Great War and WWII
are now many years ago, Legacy
nationally currently still supports
some 100,000 families (many of
which are elderly widows).
Importantly however there are also
an increasing number of younger
widows with children that are very
appreciative of how Legacy helps
Legacy provides a range of
assistance depending on the
circumstances of the individual
family which can include things like
help with power bills, assistance
with school fees and uniforms for
children, helping families cope with
bereavement, advocating for pension
and other entitlements, providing a
personal point of contact etc.
With limited help from government,
Legacy appreciates the generosity
of the public to help assist in
meeting the increasing costs of the
assistance it provides .

Retirement for today's baby boomers 'cool' and 'interesting'
However, he says today's baby
boomers will do it differently.
"They will scale back [work] from
five days, four day, three days. You
will never be quite sure if someone
is working or retired."
He said part of this was because
baby boomers had worked out that
they hadn't saved enough to retire in
the manner to which they have been
accustomed to living.
"So they will remain in the workforce
and work maybe one or two days a
week, play a bit of golf, do a bit of
volunteering, travel, undertake a bit
of education...there will be a bit of
blurring and blending of work and
retirement over that 55 to 72-year-
old time in life."
Salt said it was very much a case
of baby boomers expanding their
horizons -- and not winding down.
"Logically in Australia, life
expectancy is around the mid 80s,
so you can't act old at 65 when
you have another 20 years of living.
You could do that a generation ago,
when life expectancy was in the
70s, but if you've got another 20-25
years to go you think differently. You
think of yourself as having time to do
things for yourself."
Salt said he also believed there
would be a greater trend towards
baby boomers re-partnering.
"Why spend the last 20 years
alone? I think we will see people
select relationships and choose
partners based perhaps more on
compatibility and companionship,
rather than on the physical qualities
that attract most young people."
