On 1 March 2016, the commutation threshold will increase from R75 000 to R247 500, which will have a direct affect on your clients’ retirement decisions.

What does this mean?
The member can qualify for a lump sum payment in cash at retirement if the total of the existing available fund benefit plus benefits already accrued are less than R247 500. Should the amount be more than R247 500, the member will only be entitled to one third as a lump sum payment and the remaining amount must be used to purchase an annuity.

As a singleton in the city, I’ve had a plethora of strange, funny, weird and creepy experiences trying to meet my match. From organic encounters, to blind dates scheduled by meddlesome friends; heck, I’ve even gone speed dating.

Eventually, out of sheer morbid curiosity (I’m not lonely, I have a cat), I ventured into the mysterious world of online dating through Tinder. I know, right? But I found myself fascinated by the thought of extreme matchmaking and enthralled by the statistics. More and more couples are meeting online and in the US, it’s said to have taken off so well that 1 in every 4 couples meet online, without significant impact on separation and divorce rates. So, it’s relatively safe to say that it has become a safe(ish) way of finding a compatible partner.

There is no doubt that Africans are doing great things all over the world, Africans are excelling in a range of fields such as music, arts, fashion, sports, literature, dance and so on. This is awesome because it shows that we are breaking boundaries and also shows that Africans are diverse and talented.

There has long been an argument amongst scholars and intellectuals as to whether the spirit of entrepreneurship is something people are born with or whether it is something that can be nurtured into existence through education.

I’d like to believe that the spirit of Entrepreneurship is something that has been deeply embedded in our DNA, supplemented by our varying degrees of exposure and experiences. Built by African Hustlers, these businesses break new ground daily and are geared to solving local problems and providing value where value is required. When supported adequately, they flourish into deeply rooted bastions of our economy, creating sustainable jobs and incredible social and economic impact. Take Tshepo, The Jean Maker, for instance.

The year 2000 not only started with a bang for me but it was to be a year that defined my today.

I welcomed the dawn of the new millennium, aka the year 2000 at the pyramids of Giza in Cairo Egypt – at a party of parties  and with someone I loved. I was with my best friend and fellow radio head,  Nandipha Strydom affectionately known as Nandi.
