My invalid son just got a raise in his benefit of $2.11 cents a week[:0]. I've told him not to spend it all in one shop[}:)]

A sign of the times? And it sounds like it's more than most can expect this year.... Grim times ahead by the sounds of things....

no leter of explanation so I don't know if its a cost of living rise or a tax cut. I think it's a insult actually.

  • Thank you received: 17
benefits and national superannuation are increased 01/04/ every year based on the CPI.
There will be a lot of people this year who will receive no increase at all and others that will have hours reduced or lose their jobs.

what gets me is that my sons situation is terninal, he worked and paid tax and what quality of life does a raise that size improve?
Same battle Hestia has I know, just makes me mad as hell that people in this situation who have contributed during their wouking life have to spen their last days in poverty
