Chief Minister talks about benefit system changes

Major changes to the Isle of Man’s benefit system looks set to come in to force this year.

It comes after the Chief Minister announces major cutbacks and changes to Government.

Allan Bell has suggested a complete overhaul of the current system, which he says will provide numerous advantages for the people of the Island

Speaking about reviews into both national insurance and benefit systems the Ramsey MHK said, ‘My ambition is to have in place within two years, revised systems which meet our values of a fully inclusive, compassionate and fair society, create incentives to work and are appropriate, sustainable and well-targeted for the long term. This will challenge the principle of universality.’
