Budget 2016

Community Law and Mediation welcome the reforms contained in Budget 2016, a pre-election budget, that go some way towards alleviating the disproportionate impact on the vulnerable in our society, such as children, one parent families and low income families.  We welcome the increase in the minimum wage and look forward to further action on zero hours or insecure contracts, to address exploitation of those in precarious work.  The reforms to eligibility for the one parent family payment and changes to the Family Income Supplement and to some extent, childcare, are to be welcomed as an important step in the right direction.  For example, our pre-Budget submission on Children and the Social Welfare Code recommended that lone parent families who transitioned from One Parent Family Payment to Jobseeker’s Transitional Payment will be able to retain more income  and that the income disregard be increased from €60 to €90.  We welcome the fact that this increase has been introduced, with effect from January.  In addition, all earnings above €90 will be assessed at 50% rather than the existing 60%.
