Submission on the adequacy of Newstart and related payments
Sep 13, 2019, 11:54 AM
It is past time for the Australian parliament to legislate immediate increases to Newstart and related payment. Anglicare Australia recommends an immediate increase to Newstart and related payments of $96 a week for single people. We also call for the creation of an independent Social Security Commission to regularly review and adjust government income payments.
