Have your say on budget proposals

NIPP Budget Survey

In December 2017, the Department of Finance published a budget briefing document which sets out a number of scenarios, and suggested methods of generating income.  Its purpose is to illustrate the choices that will need to be considered by Ministers in reaching agreement on a Budget, and Age Sector Platform aims to provide feedback on this document by the deadline of 26th January. 

In order to give a fully representative response, we are asking anyone aged 50+ in Northern Ireland to provide your views on some of the suggestions that would impact on older people specifically.  These include:

  • Linking eligibility for the Smartpass with the State Pension Age
  • Introducing prescription charges; and
  • Charging for domiciliary care

If you would like to read the budget briefing in full, you can access it HERE.

Our survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete, and responses should be submitted by Sunday 21st January.  Click on the link below to access the survey:
