This submission is in response to the Senate inquiry on the Social Security (Administration) Amendment (Income Management to Cashless Debit Card Transition) Bill 2019. NTCOSS welcomes the opportunity to respond to this inquiry. The proposed amendments would see the whole of the NT made a trial site for the Cashless Debit Card (CDC), until June 2021 (in line with the Government’s Budget announcement, to move people on compulsory Income Management (IM) in the NT onto the CDC from January 2020). While the Bill would see people who are currently on IM transitioned onto the CDC, there would also be a broader remit regarding the categories of social welfare recipients covered within the trial.
