This petition had 129 supporters
Irds formula is forcing paying parents to live by means which are not fair. They are often changing jobs or residence because they cannot meet finacially the most basic of living standards.Avoiding promotions and even overtime in fear of the negative impact when reassessed. The stress and anguish this is causing has a detremental affect on the individual aswell as the family combined.
Its sad to see in NZ that by being a beneficiary you actually live a more relaxed and fufilled life rather than the working class of NZ. They way its been set out there is no reason for the 'RECIEVING PARENT' to ever work and instead live happily recieving from the Paying parent unconditonally.
This petitions aim is to rather have a blanket formula assess based on salary,living costs, medical expenses etc.
And take into account if the reciever has been recieving over x amout of time what steps has ird taken to investigate whu they havent found work
