That's correct. Women live longer. We know that. We also know that for the women who are certainly seniors right now, the labour force attachment was lower, so they will have lower CPP benefits, on average, for various reasons. Not only are they living longer but they also tend to have a lower income, so more women rely on OAS and GIS as their principal source of income. About a third of the seniors who receive the guaranteed income supplement top-up had incomes below $2,000, other than OAS and GIS. That's a pretty dramatic support for them.
