Letter: Cost of living increase for pensioners and AVBZ insurance refund

POSTED: 10/11/11 1:38 PM

Dear Editor,

It is nice to hear that the prime minister wants to enact laws that will benefit the elderly, but what is hampering the prime minister from doing something tangible like giving the ok so that the pensioners of the St. Maarten Government Pension Fund can receive their cost of living increase over the year 2010. This consent from the prime minister does not need the enactment of a new law to be carried out. Just a simple signature from the prime minister is sufficient. So, Madame prime minister, do justice to the pensioners of the St. Maarten Government Pension Fund.

By the way, Madame prime minister, while you are taking care of the cost of living increase for the pensioners also please see to it that people who are entitled to a refund from the AVBZ insurance receive such.
Amongst these persons there are pensioners who are awaiting their refund. It is their money and every little bit counts. Do not allow the civil servants to tell the people that there is no money budgeted for that. That message comes across as if the government is incompetent.
So, Madame prime minister, I thank you in advance for solving the above mentioned issues.

A concerned citizen
