New winter energy payment not for everyone

Aug 15th, 2018 | By | Category: Radio News

A Tawa pensioner who’s receiving the government’s winter energy payments, doesn’t think it should be for everyone.

 

The payment is to help people cope with increased winter heating costs.

 

It is automatically paid to those on specified Work and Income benefits.

 

74 year old Dianne Greenbank who is a superannuitant and receives $20 a week to help with heating costs, says there should be a higher requirement of eligibility so people don’t take advantage of the payment.

 

The Winter Energy Payment is part of the Families Package handed out by the Government.
