One-off social security payments
Posted on: Wed 11 Mar 2020
As part of this week’s Federal Government Economic Stimulus Package, a once-off payment will be awarded to New Start and Youth Allowance recipients.
Although this is a useful payment, The Australian Council of Social Service say an ongoing and permanent 95 dollar a week raise to allowances is what is really needed.
Pas Forgione, Raise The Rate Community Organiser from the Australian Council of Social Service joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to explain more.
