Submission on proposed AISA amendment

All whānau should have access to a support system that truly supports the well-being of their whole whānau. A fit-for-purpose child support system will help to ensure that tamariki do not have to go without essentials because of the confusing and harmful rules of that support system.

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 welcome the opportunity to give feedback for this consultation on waiving the 10 working days’ notice period (the notice period).
