The States are asked to decide:-
Whether they are of the opinion to approve the draft Ordinance entitled "The Social Insurance (Rates of Contributions and Benefits, etc.) Ordinance, 2016", and to direct that the same shall have effect as an Ordinance of the States.
This proposition has been submitted to Her Majesty's Procureur for advice on any legal or constitutional implications in accordance with Rule 4(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the States of Deliberation and their Committees.
This Ordinance amends rates of contributions, upper and lower income limits, rates and amounts of benefits and prescribes the percentages for the Guernsey Health Service Fund Allocation and the Long-term Care Insurance Fund Allocation for 2016 under the Social Insurance (Guernsey) Law, 1978. With the exception of section 7 (which deals with rates and amounts of benefits and which comes into force on 4th January, 2016), the Ordinance is effective on 1st January, 2016.
