    Social Welfare Programs in England


    "Britain has a long history of state-funded social welfare. The reforming government of Lloyd George set in motion the development of the welfare state, which culminated in the Beveridge Report of 1941. It set out to provide security for all citizens from "cradle to grave" and cater to surviving soldiers from the Second World War. The resulting legislation, implemented after the war, introduced the idea of National Insurance. This is a tax paid by all working adults that supplements other forms of government income to fund old-age pensions, disability benefits, social housing and support for the unemployed. In 1948, the NHS was created to give free health care to all at the point of need. Current forms of British social welfare are described in this article.

    Jobseekers Allowance

    The unemployed may claim welfare in the form of Jobseekers Allowance. It is available to those who can prove that they are actively seeking work between the ages of 18 and 65...

    Incapacity Benefit

    For those who are too ill to work, a variety of benefits may be available. The most readily available is Incapacity Benefit. Individuals who are deemed medically incapable of work may claim up to 91.40 ($131.87) per week. For those with serious disabilities, a number of government grants are also available to pay for caregivers, building modifications and other necessary medical treatment. Disability benefits are generally means tested.

    Housing Benefit

    The unemployed, people on extremely low incomes, and those deemed medically unable to work may also claim help with their rent. This is paid by the local authority in which the person lives. Some poor individuals live in state-owned or subsidized housing and pay a much lower rent to live there with their families.

    Child Tax Credits

    Working Families Tax Credits are available for parents who are over 16 and work more than 16 hours per week. If the parent is over 25, he must work at least 30 hours per week. Child Benefit is also available for parents who support their children's education...

    State Pension

    The current U.K. retirement age is 65. At this age, individuals may claim the State Pension. Most people also take out private or company pensions while working, but as long as enough National Insurance payments have been made over a person's working life, a full State Pension is available to everyone..."

    Britain has never been socialist...we know we live here, in the 80's when the lefties took over the Labour party Labour didn't get so much as a sniff of government even though the Tories under Thatcher were hated like no other modern government.

    There has NEVER been a communist mp. Labour only wins when they come back to the centre. Americans are politically brainwashed in this matter.

    Labour were certain to win in '92 until pillock Kinnock did this
    Pillock Kinnock loses Labour the 92 election

    You mean like my grandparents struggling to live on a pension after working for at least 60 years (from around 16)...

    I like how we're commenting on another nation's politics, it seems some don't like it here in reverse, the difference is familiarity - we're not drowning.

    So you're not arguing that England is a socialist state?

    Both Arthur Brain and LMOHM are from England, hence the reason I'm commenting on another nation's politics.

    The US is going into the sewer just as fast as England is. Obviously you're not familiar with economics, or you'd be concerned with national debt. Here's Great Britains:

    I wouldn't mind you commenting on another nations politics if you actually knew something about it....

    Benefits and healthcare are not responsible for the state of the economy. In case you hadn't noticed there's been a global recession in the last few years.

    Come to think on it the current prime minister here is slashing benefits and forcing sick people back into the jobs market. You'd probably love him...

    Feel free, I've just seen many comments that say things like "tend your own lawn" and various other things meaning keep your nose out.

    I appreciate your presumption, it does you no merit. As for national debt... I'm convinced you're the one dragging others into the sewer with your heedless financial sector.

    Your comment is a real headscratcher, OBVIOUSLY I'm not familiar with economics...?

    I at least wait for you to show your ignorance, please extend me the same generosity.
