Less money for the children of IV-pensioners

IV-pensioners and pensioners are to receive for their children for less money. The national Council voted on Thursday to reduce children's pensions.

With 106 to 66 votes in favour and 10 abstentions, the large chamber was a control well, which had incorporated the social Commission in the Revision of the IV-act. It's about the money for the children of IV-pensioners, which is now called "children's pension" and "allowance for parents" do you mean. The allowance is to be reduced from 40 to 30 per cent of the pension.

in addition to the SVP and the FDP, the majority of the centre parties supported the reduction. The supporters were inside, and advocates argued, in the case of disability insurance continue cost-saving measures needed. With the reduction of children's pensions of 112 million Swiss francs could be saved in a year.

in Addition, led today's pensions in the case of families with many children to wrong incentives. It should not be the case that families with IV-pension are better off than families who earned their living themselves, said Ruth Humbel (CVP/AG). In the case of a full disability pension from 2370 Swiss francs, the child's pension amounts to today 948 Swiss francs per child. Under certain circumstances, family allowances would be in addition to a working parent.

Irresponsible and shameful

Against the reduction of the Ratslinke. It go to about 70'000 children from IV-Users, and more than 26 000 children of AHV Recipients, said Maya Graf (Green/BL). A cut would be irresponsible and shameful. You could bring to families in Need. The Affected would have to apply for supplementary benefits, what the cost would only be shifted.

Silvia Schenker (SP/BS) described the planned reduction in Retirement benefits as an "unnecessary demonstration of power against the Weakest". Already today, a regulation does not ensure that there is an over-insurance.

supplementary benefits

social Affairs Minister Alain Berset also, in this point, when applicable. Almost half of the IV-recipients have already entitled to supplementary benefits, he warned. The children are lowered, pensions, expect the Federal government with additional costs for supplementary benefits of 47 million Swiss francs. Furthermore, the Federal government was in the process of analyzing the System of children's pensions. The Parliament should wait for the result.

Variable annuity

On the Federal Council rates the Council remained in the continuous pension system, which he guthiess - also against the will of the Left. The goal is that people with disabilities to use their residual work capacity. Making work pay for IV-a recipients in each case. Today, this is because of threshold effects is not always the case.

In an ideal labour market would be nothing to object, said Schenker. It is mangle, but in suitable jobs. You know many who would very much like to work, if you were to find a job.

full pension is to be awarded to a minimum of 70%

for A full pension – as it is today – a degree of Disability of 70 percent. In the case of the last IV-Revision, the Parliament in 2013, sank, was this question a controversial issue. The national Council spoke out three times for 70 per cent, the Council of States three times for 80 percent.

Already underway, pensions are to be calculated under the new System, if the insured Person is to enter into effect, 60 years old, and the degree of Disability changes by at least 5 percentage points. Minorities applied for, all over 50 Years old to exclude or continuous System only for Neurenten. These requests of the Council, but refused.

No ratio for company

no, the national Council also said an application from the left side for a Quote. He does not want to commit to companies with more than 250 employees, at least a percentage of workers to employ at the end with a disability. Schenker argued in vain, all the integration efforts, prevailed nothing, when it's jobs for the Affected mangle.

The civic groups called for voluntary participation. A commitment would be counterproductive, said Bruno Pezzatti (FDP/ZG). Commission spokesman Christian Lohr (CVP/TG) was concerned, it could be for the Affected stigmatising, if you would set as the "quota disabled". The Federal Council should, however, be able to with the umbrella organisations of the world of work agreements. The Council has approved 95 to 93 votes, almost.

focus on youth

on Wednesday, the national Council had decided on measures to promote the integration of young people and the mentally Ill – in particular by the earlier version. That there is still potential for improvement, was undisputed. In the future, young people should have from the 13. The age of the IV can be reported, if the entry is at risk to their careers. The IV reported not only disabled, but also from a longer-term inability to work, persons at risk should also be. The goal is that the IV support measures can take.

Yes, the national Council also said any Changes in Daily for young adults. In order to increase the incentive to work, to align the daily allowance of the amount of a wage for learning. Further changes to the law relating to birth defects. The national Council agrees that these clear criteria in the law are enshrined. Supplemented by the Council rules, the quality of appraisals on behalf of the IV.

In the total vote of the national Council, was the name of the template 133 to 0, with 55 abstentions. The voice of the SP and the greens included. Now, the Council of States is on the train. (ij/sda)
