Stop the national rollout of the cashless debit card for all welfare recipients
- Let Jacqui Lambie and the LNP that if they vote for a national rollout of the cashless debit card for all Australian welfare recipients that you will no longer vote for them. It appears the aged pension will be included in this rollout. The card managers are expected to be the big four banks which should send shivers down your spine. INDUE the current managers have a list of approved senders they allow the card to be used for and if you need to make a payment to an entity not in their list you must seek prior approval which can take from two to twenty rights days. So far transactions denied have been rent, mortgages, direct debits, council rates, utility payments, school fees, tank water, wood for household heating, fuel,, vehicle repairs and accommodation for out region surgery etc. They allow Coles online shopping but not Woolies. Card holders have been forced into homekessness and bankruptcy. if the card manager feels a purchase is too expensive for you they will not allow the transaction. You are adults and should be treated as such. Not treated like a second class citizens.
