No JSA will NOT be paid in this manner - if you read the article correctly then you will see this is going replace the discretionary payments / Social fund payments - to those in crisis.

 

 

 

‘Food stamps’ to be issued in Britain next week to tens of thousands of vulnerable people as part of benefits shake-up .

Vouchers will be redeemable for food, nappies and other essentials

They will be offered to needy by councils after crisis funds devolved locally.

The stamps willreplace Social Fund's discretionary loans and grants

 

The voucher scheme is being introduced from 1 April under changes to benefits outlined in last year's Welfare Reform Act.

The food stamps will replace the discretionary part of the government-run Social Fund, which issued immediate, small cash grants and loans to people on low or no incomes who needed help urgently.

Now, instead of the money being handed out by central government, it is being devolved to local authorities in England and devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales.

I would hope those who are in desperate need will not be deterred from applying for crisis loans.

We had a discussion about this some time ago. A proposal (it never got further than that) to pay benefits in kind or via prepaid cards redeemable for food was rejected as unworkable. So I'm not seeing this happening any time soon.

Does this effect the Budgeting Loans too?

 

Bet it is going to be a great help for all those who are moving due to HB being cut and need help with things like rent in advance.....bet they would be delighted to be told they (and their prospective landlord) had to have vouchers instead!

Another idelogy based decision. On silly asummptions that crisis loans are used to fund drinking.

 

I can see verious issues cropping up.

 

1 - Creates postcode lottery similiar to CTB changes, eg. how is the budget split amongst councils? will councils with more poor people have a tougher time having to share out a equal sized budget amongst more people?

2 - crisis loans were paid back, these are not, so cost I assume actually goes up and I guess eventually there will be a cut made to make up for it.

3 - Corruption, will people sell these for cash, then others profit of them.

4 - stigma of using them.

5 - disabled etc. cant use these for internet shopping, requires use at a till.

6 - how are things like rent advances, and deposits, new washing machine etc. funded by emergemcy help?

7 - eligibility. I think the DWP simply checked their computer systems for this, will councils do so differently? Will it need refferals from specific people like food stamps do for food banks?

Some people may have to travel miles if the vouchers are to only be used in certain shops. We have a Sainsburys which is a good 4 miles away and not exactly safe to get to if you don't drive.
