Welfare rates to be adjusted

The standard payment rates under the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) Scheme will be increased by 2.7% from February 1, the Government announced today.   The adjustment will also apply to the rates of the Old Age Allowance, including those payable under the Guangdong and Fujian schemes, Old Age Living Allowance and Disability Allowance.   The adjustment will incur an additional expenditure of $1.448 billion per year, benefiting 1.38 million recipients.   On the same day, the maximum rent allowance under the CSSA Scheme will also be adjusted upwards by 1.6%.   Additionally, the CSSA Scheme will be further enhanced from February 1, including enhancements to the Disregarded Earnings arrangement and extending the special grants to eligible non-elderly able-bodied recipients.   Call 2343 2255 for enquiries.
