A great way to see what other single mums think about different things...

do u think the single mothers pension should have a payment rise

By Jubbly
It is not the single mothers pension actually.................... it's the single parent's pension. Let's not get too subjective. An increase would help make ends meet. It's heaps better than in the 1980s early 1990s...when we lived week to week and were looked down upon by the community.
I actually am coping ok on the Parenting Payment. It is almost $300 a week, add on to that, the Family Tax Benefit A and B, and then Child Support, it works out to be quite a decent amount.

I am so grateful for it all to be honest!
