mrs doc just gets the basic pension so when the 'new' pension comes in will she get £184? serious question cos if she doesn't then it indicates the system is very weird and ill thought out.......maybe ? I just can't fathom the 'new ' system out at all.

No. What you have, you keep. There is a transitional arrangement for new pensioners whereby if you would have been better off under the old arrangements you will get that top up.

ETA: If she has the full Manx Supplement rejoice because that is now locked in, but it starts to reduce by 5% per year for new pensioners until it disappears altogether for those retiring in 20 years from now.

What's that?

It's the Government way of telling the local workers looking for work or wanting to change jobs, we don't want you

Exactly, they’ll give anyone an NI rebate for a year to move here but piss all to anyone looking for employment who has paid tax and Ni into the system for decades. They really are desperate to get the public sector pensions paid by conning people over.

thanks Wooley. Sadly she just gets the basic, no Manx supplement, which is what prompted the question because I thought it appears that if she was going on to the 'new' system she would have got more.............I do get the Manx supplement so I don't think it's much difference...........Bit confusing, to me anyhow..

Don’t know if this is a separate scheme but here’s Cregeen giving it large and bullshiting like the rest of them.

would like to know how this will work, as with most schemes IOMG propose, has potential to aid the usual vested interests rather than the ex student themselves. In fact what’s to say an employer takes a Manx Graduate on, and after their subsidy ends, makes them surplus to requirements? Sorry to sound cynical.

All here 2112 https://www.gov.im/media/1364409/pn-207-19-national-insurance-holiday-scheme-final.pdf

Not sure who the usual vested interests are but the only people who can get a refund of their contributions are the workers themselves.

Now what would be really nice would be if we could waive  visa fees for worker migrants. Incredibly expensive to get visas for worker and family, a real barrier to non-EEA folk coming here.

I think that’s the scheme TSOS is referring to. It’s hard to work out though as they seem to be trying to pretend that this is to be used to help Manx students return when if you read the criteria published it’s really a way of handing out more of our money to non Manx people to come over and work here. The criteria seems to be that you can get a whole year NI holiday as an employed person if (a) you’ve been non-resident for 5 years or more and decide to move here, or (b) you’re a returning Manx student. You can guess that there will be a lot more of our money dished out to people in category (a) than category (b).

So how come we have 1000s of workers here now from "non EEA" countries ? (and have done for at least 20 years.)

Do we have an exact (or claimed or admitted) figure for this year's drawdown from the reserves yet? Or did Alf manage to balance the Budget?

Like Eddie.

You made a spelling mistake there. Seems cheap mentioning it but you seem to point out all the spelling mistakes others make.
