Annual General Adjustment of rates and thresholds

08 April 2019.

This year, we also include three remedial matters alongside the Annual General Adjustment (AGA) – two minor technical amendments following the rewrite of the Social Security Act, and exempting the back-payments made for the Accommodation Supplement boundaries issue from income and cash assets tests for social assistance.
