What do you see as your main priority in the brief in the coming year? We’ve made excellent progress to date on the establishment of our new social security system and we will continue to build on this. The benefits that will be introduced from next year, particularly disability benefits, will be more complex and we are ready for this challenge. I also know that our new Scottish Child Payment will make a major difference to the lives of children and tackle child poverty head-on and lift 30,000 children out of poverty. We will continue to involve people in how we develop and deliver benefits to make sure they meet people’s needs and ensure we do everything in a safe and steady way and support even more people. You've found yourself having to calm tensions and try to strike a balance over gender self-ID. Do you think the conflicting issues over women’s rights and trans rights can be resolved?

“This bill has been an opportunity to set up a new service and to do things differently, to remake the system in a way that better fits with the ambition we have for ourselves, as a parliament and as a country. Our shared ambition to live with dignity, fairness and respect.” The bill – which formed part of the post-referendum deal on new powers for Holyrood – means that the Scottish Parliament is taking over responsibility for 11 benefits, including Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Carer’s Allowance. The devolution of the powers is being staggered, with the newly established Social Security Scotland on course to provide six benefits by the end of September. According to the most recent figures, the Carer’s Allowance Supplement has helped around 77,500 so far by providing £35m, in addition to the £157m in Carer’s Allowance payments made to date. More than 9,700 low-income families have been supported … [Read more...] about The year in social security calls for a different approach
Equifax Inc., one of the three biggest US credit-reporting firms, is about to reach an agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and most state attorneys general, under which it will pay a $700 million fine over a 2017 data breach, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. The settlement may be announced as soon as Monday, sources familiar with the matter told WSJ. The exact amount of money Equifax will have to pay may change, depending on the number of consumer claims filed. The settlement will also oblige the company to overhaul its security network, a task estimated to cost the company an additional $1.25 billion, the report said. The 2017 hack exposed nearly 150 million US citizen names, Social Security numbers, birth dates and addresses. According to the report, hackers were able to rummage undetected through the company’s network for months. Equifax did not report the breach for a period of six weeks after it was initially … [Read more...] about Equifax to Pay $700 Mln for 2017 Social Security Data Breach
Kailey Fralick The Motley Fool Published 10:00 AM EDT Jun 23, 2019 Social Security provides a welcome stream of guaranteed revenue in retirement, but you could be in for a rude awakening if you don't understand how the program works. There are a lot of misconceptions out there, which is understandable, because the program has changed over the years and more changes are on the horizon. But it's time to set the record straight. Here are four of the most common misconceptions about Social Security that should be laid to rest. 1. You get your full Social Security benefit at age 65. This was the case when Social Security was first created and for many years afterward. But as funding the program became more and more difficult, the government began moving the goalposts. Today, full retirement age is somewhere between 66 and 67, depending on when you were born. Are you on Social Security? Expect a smaller raise in 2020 You can start Social Security as early as 62, but you'll … [Read more...] about Social security myths: Can you separate fact from fiction?
