Financial Resolutions - Budget Statement 2020
Paschal Donohoe (Dublin Central, Fine Gael)
In 2020, I am increasing by €5 the living alone allowance to help our most vulnerable elderly and disabled citizens. I am providing for further increases of €15 for the one-parent family payment and jobseeker transition income disregards and €10 for the working family payment income threshold for families with up to three children to ensure that work pays.
I am also committing to increases in the qualified child payment by a further €3 for over 12s and €2 for under 12s.
