This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 October 2010, are made under the Social Security Act 1964 (the Act). They amend Schedule 1 of the Social Security (Temporary Additional Support) Regulations 2005, which defines a person's chargeable income (which is considered when determining the person's eligibility for temporary additional support). Clauses 4(b) and 5 exclude from that chargeable income payments made to the person under specified programmes established and approved by the Minister for Social Development and Employment under section 124(1)(d) of the Act. Clause 5 is amended so that the specified programmes—
include 2 new programmes established and approved by the Minister, namely—
no longer include the Care Supplement Programme (which the Minister revoked on 31 March 2009).
Date of notification in Gazette: 2 September 2010.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Social Development.
