We welcome the opportunity to give feedback to the omnibus Child Support (Pass On) Amendment Bill (The Bill). FinCap strongly supports the changes to the child support system which will see child support going directly to the parent on a sole parent benefit from 1 July 2023. We also strongly support the intention that changes ensure liable parents can have child support considered for Temporary Additional Support and Special Benefit purposes. Both changes should ultimately see more kai and heating in homes for tamariki.
