Issued: June 2024

Budget 2025



The annual budget presents the opportunity for taking substantive steps towards achieving a social protection system that ensures minimum income adequacy and enables a life with dignity. This submission builds on the evidence from the MESL to detail the rate adjustments which are required to protect households from being pushed further into income inadequacy. The recommendations focus on restoring the real value of core social protection supports and making steps to progressively improve the adequacy of core rates.
