Beehive Press Release –

A new law enabling sole parents on a benefit to receive child support payments for their tamariki was passed in Parliament today.

“This change is estimated to lift as many as 14,000 children out of poverty and give families a median of $20 extra a week,” said Social Development and Employment Minister Carmel Sepuloni.

“Under the Child Support (Pass On) Acts Amendment Act, child support collected by Inland Revenue will be passed on directly to people on a sole parent rate of main benefit from 1 July 2023.

“The first payments will be passed on to parents from 22 August 2023.
