Treasury Minister Ediie Teare MHKOn this week’s programme, Roger will be taking a closer look at the latest review of the Isle of Man’s social security and national insurance schemes.

Commissioned by Treasury, the report by consultants Ci65 claims the Island’s social security system is ‘out of date and broken’ and needs to be transformed to makTreasury's Chief Financial Officer Malcolm Couche it sustainable into the future.

Earlier this month it was revealed that, for a second year running, more was paid out of the National Insurance Fund in pensions and benefits than was put back in via NI contributions, and that the Fund is now likely to run out sooner than previously predicted.

To discuss the current situation, and the proposals being considered to address the shortfall, Roger will be joined in the studio by Treasury Minister Eddie Teare MHK, Chief Financial Officer Malcolm Couch, and senior officer at the Treasury David Ireland.
