ONE off payment for carbon tax

Pensioners will receive their first carbon price compensation on Monday.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard says single pensioners will receive a one-off payment of $250 and couples $380. The amounts apply to full and part pensions.

"This assistance is there to help people with the flow-through impact of putting a price on carbon," Ms Gillard told reporters in Canberra on Sunday.

From March next year, single pensioners will receive an extra $338 each year, paid at the same time as their normal pension. Couples will receive an extra $510.

Ms Gillard said millions of pensioners will be better off.
Compensation worth $707 million will be paid to pensioners before the carbon price starts on July 1.

when your on $500.000 almost a year I guess its hard to get your head around increases of $1 a day.... even more so when you dont pay for the bills you do rack up.. its all paid for by the mugs..

I think it's you that needs to read the article Maqqa.

There is a one-off payment in advance, then an increase to the pension from March onwards. It's there in black and white.

Surely your comprehension isn't that bad?

Tony Abbott will no doubt accuse pensioners of squandering the money on luxuries like food and clothing when they should be buying bottles of Moet Chandon and Johnny Walker Green Label.

Just read the article





And for those who ( ... apparently) CAN'T read ...



The $250 payment is nine months worth of weekly carbon permit compensation - paid out this week - in ADVANCE, for the period
July 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013


At the END of this nine month period, compensation payments will be added to ( ... and paid with) fortnightly pension payments

If that's STILL too hard, there's a Wiggles DVD available at ABC shops explaining it all - for children - and the senile
