A range of social welfare increases announced in the Budget will take effect from this week.

Mayo FG Deputy Alan Dillon says increases for carers, pensioners, widows and widowers, lone parents, people with disabilities and people on Jobseekers payments will see the benefit from this week in increases to the core social welfare rates.

Pensioners will receive a €5 increase.

Minister Heather Humphreys has also increased the income thresholds for the Working Family Payment, ensuring more families will be brought into the scheme.
