Social security public consultation to launch in March

Fri, 20 Feb 2015

A major public consultation on the social security system will kick off at the start of next month.

A number of proposals from external consultants will be put before residents across the Island.

Suggestions include the introduction of a benefit cap, a new flat rate pension of £180 per week and top ups ensuring that people receive more money in work than out of work.

The first meeting will take place on March 2 in Douglas, followed by other debates in Ramsey, Port Erin and Peel throughout the week - details of which can be found on the government website.  

Minister for Treasury Eddie Teare explains what people can expect:
