Authors:
McKENDRICK B.W., SHINGWENYANA B.Z.
Journal article citation:
Social Work Maatskaplike Werk, 31(3), August 1995, pp.288-235.

Seeks to provide factual data to support or refute family dependence on old age pensions in South Africa, by reporting on a survey showing the way in which a group of urban African old age pensioners use their ex gratia old age pensions. The purpose is to establish the extent to which children and other socially vulnerable people are supported by the old age pension of one family member. If this support is extensive, the provision of state old age pensions must be thought of as a means of protecting and nurturing children and family life, and not only as a way of assisting elderly people in financial need.
