I am fortunate to have a paid off mortage and be out of debt. I also have $15,000 in a retirement saving account from when I was working. Being an honest person I declared my assets to Work and Income when I got sick, and found that, if I kept them, I was unable to claim a whole range of benefits. I have the choice of either spending all my money on trips to Australia and lotto tickets, then running bakc to the govt squealing how poor I am - or keeping what I have and being on a very low income. I am looking for a way to increase my income, either from interest on investments or rental property.
For a start
